The Mysterious Migrations of Cownose Rays

September 19 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

smithsonian environmental research centerCownose rays are enigmatic, and sometimes controversial, summertime inhabitants of Chesapeake Bay. SERC’s Fisheries Conservation Lab has been tagging cownose rays and tracking their long-distance migrations since 2014.

Speaker Dr. Matt Ogburn, head of the Fisheries Conservation Lab, will reveal some of the discoveries from this nine-year tracking effort. Their studies have uncovered the rays’ overwintering habitat, documented the different migration patterns of males and females, and revealed the environmental cues that help rays know when to start migrating. These findings are helping support conservation and management of this often misunderstood and overlooked stingray.

The event will be in person and on Zoom. Advance registration is required.
