  • Michael Stocker:Evidence of Synchronous Chorusing in North Atlantic Minke Whales
    Admission: donations are encouraged, $10 general, $5 students Join us for a fascinating presentation by Michael Stocker, Executive Director of Ocean Conservation Research, as he brings us into the world of North Atlantic minke whale vocalizations. Many rorquals (blue, fin, sei, Brydes, and minke whales) communicate with pulses in the low and infrasonic frequency ranges. Research indicates that minke whales synchronize their pulsing with others, forming a chorus. Michael will introduce us to how this was discovered and why minke whales might be communicating in this manner.
