The agreement will help improve humpback whale re- covery in the North Atlantic by enhancing management coordination efforts between the two sanctuaries. This ef- fort will help improve knowl- edge about humpbacks in the Atlantic and the threats they face from natural and man- made changes to their envi- ronment. Both sanctuaries provide critical support for the same population of whales, which spend spring and sum- mer in the feeding grounds of Stellwagen Bank before heading south to the warmer waters of the Caribbean Sea in late fall to mate and give birth to their young. The French Antilles islands are at the Caribbean's eastern edge. The two sites will explore new avenues for collaborative education, scientific and management efforts, includ- ing joint-research and moni- toring programs. NOAA an- ticipates the relationship will be crucial to the long-term conservation of the North Atlantic humpback whale population. r$--.,,.,zo:[oJ.L.afolum, z,j,-- $'I I I I I I 345 7B87-%d-Y]k Hv e ' e I I Honest & Trusted for 33 Years!!

This new agreement builds on an effort begun in 2006 when the world's first sister sanctuary initiative focused on trans-boundary humpback whales and their critical habitats was launched be- tween the Stellwagen Bank Sanctuary and the Domini- can Republic. Another agree- ment signed in July between Stellwagen Bank and the government of Bermuda also strives to help protect the species along its migration route from the Gulf of Maine to the Caribbean Sea through cooperation on scientific and educational programs. "The expansion of our sister sanctuary work to in- clude the French Antilles will play a powerful role in protecting endangered hump- back whales, and the opportunity for international cooperation in marine con- servation is invaluable," said Daniel J. Basta, director, NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. "This agreement has the potential to improve our scientific knowledge, enhance our management ability and increase awareness of the sister sanctuary program to other nations interested in such a partnership -- all of which are benefits that extend far beyond the bound- aries of the sanctuaries involved." "We share whales with other nations, just as we share the responsibility for protecting these spectacular animals," said Dr. Craig MacDonald, Stellwagen Bank superintendent. "Our broad- est mandate is to engender a new discussion in our soci- ety about the importance of protecting trans-boundary species, the special places where they live, and our responsibility as global stewards." # L[TCIA RISTORANTE & BAR Traditional Italian Cuisine Donato Frattaroli 415 Hanover Street, Boston, MA 02113 617.367.2353 -- Open for Lunch and Dinner Daily -- Private dining rooms for any occasion donato@luciaboston.com www.luciaboston.com ,.__;__'_-_,_-_J_-L_'--_-L-_'_-__---_--------_------._--_----_'-/ "Y.L--- :- -- ....
