Photos from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region's post | Things to Do in Cape May NJ

We know the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument is home to a wide variety of species – including sperm whales, green sea turtles, myriad corals and even Atlantic puffins. But there is so much we don’t know about the Monument and its inhabitants.

The defense mechanisms of deep-sea corals could hold the secrets to treating cancer or Alzheimer’s disease. Surprised fishermen have pulled out Pleistocene fossils — including mastodon and mammoth — could prehistoric human remains be next?

Join us to explore the fascinating unknown (and hear about what we do know) with Monument Superintendent, Brittany Petersen, on Facebook Live 11:30 EST on Friday!
