    1 UNF Dr, Jacksonville, FL 32224
    The Archaeological Institute of America—Jacksonville Society will meet at noon on Saturday Jan. 26, 2019 in Building 51 at the University of North Florida to hear a lecture by Dr. Patrick Hunt, a professor at Stanford University.  His lecture is titled “Timely Remedies: Ancient Medicines of Otzi, the Ice Man,” referring to the 5,300-year-old body found in the Alps in 1991.  The almost perfectly preserved remains of “Ötzi the Iceman” may give us a glimpse into medicines practiced by prehistoric peoples. We know that “Ötzi” carried a medical kit with him – his own portable pharmacy with over ten different plant products that could heal and cure. This lecture explores the medical evidence, including material technology he carried with vital medical and bioarchaeological data. This is research conducted under the auspices of National Geographic and the Institute for EthnoMedicine where Hunt is also a Research Associate in Archeoethnobotany. The lecture is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served in the Archaeology Lab afterwards.  On Saturday, parking is free, and the faculty/staff/vendor spaces are available to everyone.  For more information, contact Melva Price at (904)241-9411.

    The presence of a second right whale calf this winter off Ponte Vedra Beach on Sunday, Jan 13th was a welcome sight for researchers.  North Atlantic right whales are highly endangered, with only 411 individuals left in the population.  There were zero calves born in 2018, and only 5 in 2017.  Their greatest threats are entanglements with fishing gear and collisions with vessels.Marine Resources Council (MRC) has been training and coordinating a dedicated volunteer sighting network of coastal residents, businesses, and beachgoers to identify and report right whale sightings off the coast of Florida since 1995.  MRC is seeking shore-based volunteers in northeast Florida to report whale sightings.  This will help protect them from collisions with vessels, initiate a disentanglement response (if necessary), help researchers gather photo-ID, genetic, and behavioral data; assist with tracking their migration and more.Please join Marine Resources Council at the GTMNERR Visitor Center (formerly known as the Environmental Education Center) on Saturday, January 26th from 1:30 pm to 3:00pm to learn about these whales.  Right whale history, biology, threats, conservation, and spotter training will be discussed.  Class is free and RSVP is NOT required.GTMNERR Visitor Center:505 Guana River Rd, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082Right whales can be seen very close to shore.  How do you tell a right whale from another whale?  Right whales have:
    1. rough, white patches of skin on the head called callosities
    2. short, stubby, black flippers on the sides of the body
    3. triangular, black tail with smooth edges and a deep notch in the middle

      The presence of a second right whale calf this winter off Ponte Vedra Beach on Sunday, Jan 13th was a welcome sight for researchers.  North Atlantic right whales are highly endangered, with only 411 individuals left in the population.  There were zero calves born in 2018, and only 5 in 2017.  Their greatest threats are entanglements with fishing gear and collisions with vessels.Marine Resources Council (MRC) has been training and coordinating a dedicated volunteer sighting network of coastal residents, businesses, and beachgoers to identify and report right whale sightings off the coast of Florida since 1995.  MRC is seeking shore-based volunteers in northeast Florida to report whale sightings.  This will help protect them from collisions with vessels, initiate a disentanglement response (if necessary), help researchers gather photo-ID, genetic, and behavioral data; assist with tracking their migration and more.Please join Marine Resources Council at the GTMNERR Visitor Center (formerly known as the Environmental Education Center) on Saturday, January 26th from 1:30 pm to 3:00pm to learn about these whales.  Right whale history, biology, threats, conservation, and spotter training will be discussed.  Class is free and RSVP is NOT required.GTMNERR Visitor Center:505 Guana River Rd, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082Right whales can be seen very close to shore.  How do you tell a right whale from another whale?  Right whales have:
      1. rough, white patches of skin on the head called callosities
      2. short, stubby, black flippers on the sides of the body
      3. triangular, black tail with smooth edges and a deep notch in the middle
      4. no dorsal (back) fin
      5. V-shaped blow of water when they exhale
      Report whale sightings as soon as possible to MRC’s right whale sighting hotline at 888-97-WHALE (888-979-4253) as soon as possible from December through April.
