Overview

Mission Statement

The Center for Coastal Studies conducts scientific research with emphasis on marine mammals of the western North Atlantic and on the coastal and marine habitats and resources of the Gulf of Maine.  We promote stewardship of coastal and marine ecosystems and conduct educational activities that encourage responsible use and conservation.  We collaborate with other institutions and individuals whenever possible to advance our mission.

Background Statement

The Center for Coastal Studies was founded in 1976 as an independent, nonprofit institution.  We are dedicated to research, conservation and public education as they relate to the coastal and marine environments.  Founded at the tip of Cape Cod, the Center has become internationally known for its progressive and innovative programs and scientific research endeavors.  Our many achievements include:  1) one of the most detailed and longest-running humpback whale research programs in the world;  2) over 25 years of research on the North Atlantic right whale, one of the world’s most endangered whales, 3) primary research supporting the designation of marine protected areas, such as the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and the Cape Cod Bay Right Whale Critical Habitat; 4) over 200 whales, sea turtles and seals rescued from entanglements in fishing gear since 1984; 5) the first comprehensive water quality monitoring project covering inshore, near-shore and off-shore stations within Cape Cod Bay; 6) the first complete coastal survey of erosion and deposition rates along the Cape’s great outer beach since the 1880’s; 7) the first near-shore seafloor mapping in Cape Cod Bay, using state-of-the-art side scan sonar; 8) hundreds of thousands whale watching passengers educated about marine biology, ecology and natural history; 9) over 165 scientific publications and technical reports advancing the science and conservation of endangered species, ecosystems, and coastal processes; 10) since 2012, our facility has generated its own energy with a 38.4kw solar array; 11) a major renovation of our research laboratory in Provincetown, MA was completed in early 2017.

Impact Statement

CCS is a leader in the study and conservation of marine mammals, environments and ecosystems. We developed techniques used to rescue free-swimming whales, seals and sea turtles from life-threatening entanglements in fishing gear. With each life saved, the Marine Animal Entanglement Response team collects data to better understand and eliminate the entanglement problem. CCS is internationally known for humpback whale research in the North Atlantic and other oceans. We have worked since the 1970s to advance understanding of humpback whale biology, ecology, status and threats. Our scientists conduct long-term studies of North Atlantic right whales and their critical habitat around Cape Cod, and are working to re-establish consistent survey effort on Jeffreys Ledge, based out of Gloucester, MA. With just over 500 North Atlantic right whales remaining, these projects are essential to ensure that this endangered species does not lose its battle for survival on our watch.  CCS conducts water quality monitoring to evaluate the health and productivity of Cape Cod Bay and other water bodies. Our scientists also study geological processes along or near the coast to ensure that the wild shoreline that defines Cape Cod is better understood, better managed, and better protected from development. We also work with fishermen to understand fisheries and to reduce marine debris in our bays and on our beaches.

Needs Statement

A strategic plan was developed in 2014 and identified the following areas of institutional need:  1) improved financial sustainability, 2) increased staffing and personnel development, 3) strengthening academic partnerships, 4) greater public outreach/impact, and 5) evaluation of need for programmatic expansion.

Marine Animal Entanglement Response

The Marine Animal Entanglement Response program is an emergency, field-based conservation effort, maintaining an on-call, year-round staff to disentangle and document marine animals (whales and sea turtles) entangled in fishing gear and marine debris. We place a special emphasis on the waters off Massachusetts and the southern Gulf of Maine, a region with one of the highest number of entanglement sightings in the country.  This unique program has also helped develop entanglement response globally.

Program Success Monitored By 

We measure our success by our ability to respond quickly and meaningfully to entangled whales and sea turtles. We train and work closely with a network of partners from the Bay of Fundy to Florida to ensure the best treatment possible for entangled marine animals. We also measure success by our ability to communicate information gathered via online resources, publications, and presentations at conferences. We strive to inform the public and targeted on-water communities about what to do when they encounter entangled animals.

Examples of Program Success  The Marine Animal Entanglement Response program seeks to mitigate human impacts and to provide information to aid in the prevention of entanglement risk to whales and sea turtles.  We maintain year-round on-call response capacity for entangled whales and sea turtles and have safely disentangled over 200 whales and sea turtles since 1984. This includes endangered species such as humpback and right whales and leatherback sea turtles.

Marine Policy and Education

The Marine Policy Program promotes stewardship of coastal and marine ecosystems through integration of research and applied science conducted by CCS and others into coastal and ocean public policy. The overarching objectives of this program are to: 1) build stronger relationships with public policy makers; 2) provide information and analysis that may assist local and regional governments, state and federal agencies, and organizations in making informed decisions and 3) collaborate with others to broaden public discussion and consideration of current and future marine policy issues.
 
CCS also promotes stewardship and raises awareness about marine and coastal environments through its Marine Education program.  We offer a schedule of programs designed for a broad spectrum of audiences and ages, including students and the general public. Programs incorporate the cutting edge research of CCS scientists and the natural history of coastal and marine environments of Massachusetts. We particularly engage local schools and communities on issues relating to water quality, marine debris and plastic pollution, and marine mammals.

Program Short-Term Success 
The Marine Policy program will facilitate the inclusion of our research findings, scientific advice and data in local, regional, federal and international resource management.  Our marine education program will continue to implement and expand programming, most notably through school programs and public events.
Program Long-Term Success 
We strive to ensure that the results of coastal and marine research are available to and integrated into sound public policy.  We also seek greater public awareness and stewardship for the marine environment.
Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success 
Our staff have served as members of a wide range of policy and scientific committees. Thanks to these efforts, the Cape Cod Commission recently included additional protection for whales and turtles in the Cape Cod Ocean Management Plan, as well as in the regulatory performance standards of the Cape Cod Regional Policy Plan. The 2014 Massachusetts Coastal Erosion Commission recommended the advancement of sediment transport mapping and modeling to develop regional sediment budgets.  In the realm of education, CCS has educated hundreds of thousands whale watching passengers educated about marine biology, ecology and natural history.  In 2014, our staff taught 750 children in 7 schools in 6 towns about water quality monitoring research and the importance of clean water.  Our annual "Whale Week" event highlights ocean conservation and marine mammal issues and is attended annually by over 1000 people.

Research: Ecology

The Department of Ecology seeks to better understand the relationship between the physical and biological components of the marine system and human activities in coastal and near-shore environments.  Our work encompasses a variety of investigational areas including: mid-water habitat studies, fin and shell fisheries, aquaculture, zoo- and phytoplankton biology, toxic algae monitoring, sea grass ecology and restoration, marine nutrient chemistry, pharmaceutical pollution, oceanography, and large whale ecology.

Program Short-Term Success 
Our work on NA right whale ecology will expand into new areas, using well-established protocols and new technologies to continue our long-term research programs. We are specifically working to expand our spatial and seasonal coverage of right whale critical habitat.
 
We have established a database on baseline water quality for the entire shoreline of Cape Cod and the Islands which will be fundamental to future management decisions.  We are the first to document the presence of CECs in the coastal waters of Massachusetts.  We expanded and strengthened this initial research by using shellfish and passive samplers to document the bioaccumulation of wastewater derived organic compounds. 
Program Long-Term Success 

The Right Whale Research Program studies the ecology of this endangered species by documenting its distribution and habitat use relative to its zooplanktonic food resources.  We focus particularly on the Cape Cod Bay Critical Right Whale Habitat and our work is a component of the Massachusetts Large Whale Conservation Program.  We expect our data and findings to improve the conservation of NA right whales here and throughout their range. 

The Marine and Estuary Studies Program monitors and evaluates the quality and overall health of marine and estuarine ecosystems through the integration of chemical, physical and biological studies. We focus on water quality, contaminants of emerging concern, eelgrass habitat, and marine invasive species.
 
Our Marine Fisheries Research program focuses on scientific and policy issues confronting Provincetown and outer Cape fishermen and aquaculturists, with a long-term goal of expanding geographically throughout the Gulf of Maine and beyond. Major projects involve cooperative research and education, working directly with individual industry members. The program fosters collaboration and understanding between fishermen and scientists by actively seeking out partnerships and providing a neutral forum for discussion.
Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success 

Our long-term, fine-scale ecological study of NA right whales has advanced the understanding of habitat use and threats facing this species.  Additionally, approximately half of the NA right whale population is documented annually through this research.  Our work has contributed to a shift in the shipping lanes in the Bay of Fundy and on Stellwagen Bank, and supported the continuation of the Ship Strike Rule which limits ship speed in areas of right whale activity.  Our water quality monitoring program collected 2,300 samples in 2014. Volunteers collected ~300 and the remaining 2000 were collected by CCS and its collaborators in 2014.  We expanded our work on contaminants of emerging concern to the waters of Nantucket Sound, its embayments and coastal ponds (2013) and examining the bioaccumulation of these CECs in shellfish and passive integrative samplers (2014).  We partnered with MBL and shellfish farmers to develop methods to reduce the potential for entanglement of marine animals in aquaculture gear.  We initiated an integrated study of seafloor mapping, seal surveys, fisheries and benthic ecology in Pleasant Bay.


Research: Marine Geology

CCS studies the geological processes that occur along or near the coast, from estuaries and lagoons to the inner continental shelf. This research focuses on topics such as coastal sediment transport, tidal inlet evolution, ocean waves and tidal currents, shoreline change, seafloor mapping, as well as storm impacts to beach, dune and shallow water ecosystems.

Program Short-Term Success 

In the short-term the program will continue to map submerged resources, to use remote sensing techniques to aid in the assessment of benthic habitats and oyster beds and to undertake research on coastal change and resiliency.

Program Long-Term Success 

The seafloor mapping program uses state-of-the-art Phase-Measuring Bathymetric, or interferometric, sonar instrumentation to collects coincident bathymetry and sidescan sonar imagery. The aim is to produce quality data products to conduct rigorous scientific investigations as well as inform the managers and stakeholders with data for the future needs for coastal and marine spatial planning. In the long-term, this will inform how we as a society we deal with climate change sea level rise, increasing coastal development, coastal and marine-based renewable energy and sand and gravel resources for beach replenishment projects.

The Land/Sea Interaction program aims to improve understanding of the present-day morphodynamics and hydrodynamics of present day coastal systems and large scale coastal evolution in recent geological history.  It places a particular emphasis on the coastal systems of the northeastern United States in general and southeastern Massachusetts in particular.

Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success  The program has conducted the first complete coastal survey of erosion and deposition rates along the Cape’s great outer beach since the 1880’s.  It has also undertaken the first near-shore seafloor mapping in Cape Cod Bay, using state-of-the-art side scan sonar.  In 2014, the program used its remote sensing equipment to locate and facilitate the removal of derelict fishing gear, in collaboration with fishermen, the Town of Provincetown and others.  A total of 16 tons of marine debris were removed from Provincetown Harbor and reused, recycled or burned for energy.

Research: Population Biology

The Department of Population Biology focuses on population structure, dynamics and the factors that affect viability. We are known for long-term studies of North Atlantic humpback and right whales, as well as research on a range of other cetacean species and seals.  We use a wide range of tools and collaborate with a range of disciplines, including mark-recapture statistics, molecular genetics, genomics, microbiology, endocrinology, toxicology and ethology. The impacts of human activities on marine mammal populations are a particular focus of research. Although our activities take place predominantly in the North Atlantic, work is also done in other oceans to improve understanding. We also provide international capacity building for research and conservation through training programs and collaboration.

Program Short-Term Success  In the coming year, we will continue our long-term research programs, add new areas of research based on new opportunities and technologies, expand upon research collaborations, offer training opportunities to developing scientists and share our findings with naturalists, managers and the scientific community.
Program Long-Term Success  The long term goals of this program are to increase understanding of the biology and population dynamics of endangered marine species, including the great whales.  We seek to use data from well-studied populations to develop better tools and methods for understanding cetaceans.  We also strive for a better understanding of the impacts of humans activities on marine mammals in order to improve resource management and conservation.
Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success 
CCS has undertaken more than three decades of continuous humpback whale research and developed one of the most comprehensive databases on a humpback population.  We are the only organization that studies Gulf of Maine humpbacks across their feeding range, from Nantucket to Nova Scotia.  We also undertake research in other oceans and maintain scientific collaborations around the world. Our work has contributed to the development of new techniques for studying large whales.  Five peer-reviewed scientific papers were published on our humpback whale research in 2014 alone.  CCS research has contributed to the understanding of many other cetacean species, including NA right whales, fin whales, blue whales, minke whales and dolphins.  Our staff are on the steering committee of the North Atlantic Seal Research Consortium and we continue to expand our research on seal populations and impacts.  We have trained many developing scientists and share data and scientific advice with managers.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?
