Families, Friends & Lovers: The Social Life of Cetaceans
Fri March 27, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Whether it’s humpbacks bubble-net feeding in Alaska or bottlenose dolphins by the dozens cavorting in Baja, these marine mammals are some of the most social – creatures on Earth. Join Lindsey Nielsen and Rachel Sullivan-Lord for a fascinating dive into their relational world. Do they always travel together? Do they have ‘names’ or other identifiers for one another? Do they live in multi-generation families? Do they like to hang with friends? Learn the answers to these questions and more as we explore the complexity of whale and dolphin societies, and the importance of social connection in their lives.
