Wellington City Libraries and NIWA present a free public talk about the sounds of whales and dolphins and life on the high seas aboard the RV Tangaroa.
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?
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.
Olivia Price is a marine physics technician at NIWA. She constructs the scientific equipment needed to study our oceans.
Join us on Saturday, 25 May at 2pm at the Rangimarie Rooms, Level 3, Te Papa to hear Giacomo and Oivia discuss their fascinating work at NIWA!
