The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster will present a talk titled “We Are All Whalers, The Plight of Whales and Our Responsibility,” with Michael J. Moore on Saturday, November 12, at 1 PM.

The image most have of whalers includes harpoons and intentional trauma. Yet eating commercially caught seafood leads to the entanglement of whales and their slow death in rope and nets. The global shipping routes that bring us readily available goods often lead to whale deaths due to collisions with those same ships. In Mr. Moore’s new book, “We Are All Whalers,” his aim is to help consumers understand what is going on, and what they can do about the problem.
