Humpback Whale Ecology and Song in a Cultural Sea

/
  • Overview
  • Dolphins and whales throughout the oceanic realm rely on sound to regulate social interactions, map out their environment, and to successfully find and acquire food.  This fascinating presentation, led by wildlife biologist George Halekas, will begin by focusing on humpback whale ecology planet wide, and their creative use of song and other sound expressions. Humpback whale acoustic ecology will then be compared to unique sound cultures of blue whales, orca, sperm whales and spinner dolphins. The presentation will conclude with a detailed analysis of humpback whale songs recorded off the coastline of Tonga in the South Pacific.
