DIVING INTO THE MYSTERIOUS WORLD OF WHALES WITH DR VANESSA PIROTTA

Come along to the SMSA to hear Dr Vanessa Pirotta's enthusiasm and deep knowledge of whales as she explores a variety of timely topics – from why whale snot and poo are important for us and the ocean to the life cycle of whales, the challenges humans present to these marine giants, and the new technologies – including tagging whales via satellite – so we can see where they swim, listen to them talk and even spy on them underwater.
