The Center for Cetacean Research and Conservation www.whaleresearch.org was founded nearly three decades ago by President and Director Nan Hauser in Brunswick and for the past 21 years her research has been focused on South Pacific whales off the island Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Hauser has a home there and also in Brunswick.
In a rare public autograph signing Hauser will be available at the Maine Made Photos booth at the Cooks Corner Craft Show on Sunday, December 9 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, December 15 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Hauser has been busy working on a new one hour film which she has co-produced. She is also planning on returning to her research center soon to continue her life’s work.
The Cook Islands Whale Research Project investigates the humpback whale population that travels through the equatorial South Pacific. Research topics within the project are diverse, ranging from satellite tagging and migration to acoustics and climate change.
Hauser is world renowned in her scientific research and in September 2017 was saved from a Tiger Shark attack by a 50,000 pound humpback whale off the island of Rarotonga. There will also be a raffle to support Hauser’s whale research during the Craft Show sponsored by Maine Made Photos, Hauser and The Cryer.
