Join A POD!

PODs are a chance to gather together in a casual setting to learn more about the threats to our beloved, endangered North Atlantic right whale.  Our previous PODS all around Massachusetts have sparked lively conversation among new and old friends about possible solutions to our current crisis. We are hosting more talks across Massachusetts in the months ahead. Be on the lookout for a POD in your community.

Sign up to attend a POD or host your own! If you would like to host a POD all you need to do is invite a bunch of friends to a cozy location and guide a casual discussion about the right whale. Locations can range from your home, to a cafe, to a local library - whatever inspires you. We will provide toolkits for the hosts and pre-POD info for your guests.

To RSVP to a POD, or host your own, please contact us at:
