See A Spout, Watch Out! is a partnership program between local environmental and government partners. This program gives boaters the tools they need to be prepared to share the seas with whales along the US Atlantic seaboard.
With the large amount of whale and marine wildlife activity we've seen this summer, it's especially important for boaters to know guidelines for each species of whale, what to look for, and who to contact when something happens.
My friend of mine, Monica Pepe, works for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) out of Plymouth, and they have put together a quick and easy, completely free e-course to help increase safety for boaters and whales.
Even better, the first 300 participants of the course will receive a free pair of polarized sunglasses!

What you can expect from this free online course:
Right whales in particular are considered critically endangered, and the difference in regulations between them and other kinds of whales is drastic. With only around 368 Right Whales left and approximately just 32 calves born since 2017, it's more important than ever to keep them safe.
We hope you can participate in this free e-course to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of whales and other marine life in our waters around Cape Cod and beyond. Not to mention it's a great bonus and opportunity to snag an awesome pair of polarized sunglasses!
