Lindsay Hirt, M.S. (marine biologist) – Plymouth, Massachusetts
Having been steeped lifelong in the famed ocean-centric culture of Cape Cod and coastal Massachusetts, Lindsay Hirt is a whale-obsessed marine biologist working in New England. She works with commercial whale watching companies, ocean scientists, and conservation organizations to monitor wildlife and educate the public about the marine environment. She also takes part in rescue and rehabilitation efforts for both wildlife and domestic animals in trouble. Lindsay has combined her knowledge and skills in research science, veterinary medicine, and emergency management to represent animal welfare and environmental conservation organizations like International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), the New England Aquarium (NEAq), Whale and Dolphin Conservation of North America (WDC-NA), the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), and the Goldenrod Foundation.
Lucky enough to have presented on marine mammals twice in the past for the National Biodiversity TeachIn, Lindsay’s mission is to offer participants an unforgettable experience with whales and to inspire environmental stewardship for the Blue Planet.
