Why do scientists eavesdrop on whales and dolphins? What can recordings of whale and dolphin sounds tell us? How do you even record the sound that these creatures make? And what’s it like to go to Antarctica?
Join us on Saturday, May 25 at Te Papa for a free talk by NIWA scientists Dr Giacomo Giorli and Olivia Price to hear the answers!
The scientists will take you on a journey exploring the science of marine acoustics, the sounds of whales and dolphins and the chilly business of researching in Antarctica.
Dr Giacomo Giorli is a marine mammal acoustician at NIWA. Dr Giorli studies marine acoustics to understand the ecology, distribution and habitat selection of marine mammals. Olivia Price is a marine physics technician at NIWA. She constructs the scientific equipment needed to study our oceans.
Please note: this event will be held in the Rangimarie Rooms, Te Huinga Centre, Level 3, Te Papa.
