Whale Tales, by Olive Andrews, Conservation International
May 18, 2017, 6:30pm - May 18, 2017, 9:30pm
How did global opinion on the use of whales switch from one dominated in the 1960s by killing whales, to one in which whales became icons of conservation? In this talk, Olive Andrews will examine the changing cultural values, political rhetoric, and management strategies for whales and how they came to be worth more alive than dead. We explore the natural history and biology of whales in the Pacific and discover their fascinating acoustic communication.
At our normal venue at Grasslands Lecture Theatre, Auckland Zoo.
