Meet Kate Longley
The summer of 2010 marks Kate’s sixth season with the Dolphin Fleet. Kate received a degree in from Wesleyan University in 2006 where she focused her coursework on behavior and ecology. After spending the summer of 2005 interning with the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, she was excited to return to Provincetown the following year as a naturalist on the Dolphin Fleet.
Kate spent the next three winters working as a right whale aerial observer, working first for Wildlife Trust in Georgia, and subsequently for the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies located right here in town. Currently, as a Master's student at UMASS Boston, she is working on a project which will examine right whale habitat choice and food availability in the Gulf of Maine.
