The San Diego Natural History Museum brings experts from around the country to speak on topics including our natural environment, history, world cultures, and art. Lecture topics often coincide with the latest exhibitions at the Museum.
On Thursday May 24th hear a discussion by Bob Pitman and John Durban on NOAA’s current research in Antarctica, which consists of satellite-tagging killer whales to study movements, observing feeding behaviors and prey preferences, collecting tissue biopsy samples to compare dietary signals, contaminant loads and genetic differences, and compiling a photo-identification database in order to estimate population sizes and residency patterns of different ecotypes from different areas.
FREE! Pre-registration required.
