Whales have intrigued us for millenia. They are among the largest, most intelligent, deepest diving species to have ever lived on our planet. Whales fill us with awe, terror, and affection -- we have even inscribed their song on interstellar spacecraft -- but because they live 99% of their lives underwater, they remain mysteries to us.

Dr. Nick Pyenson, Curator of Fossil Marine Mammals at the Smithsonian will share stories from his book, featuring recent and forthcoming research from the frontlines of science discovery about whales. Dr. Pyenson will join us via zoom. We encourage you to attend in person. Ticket = 1x raffle entry.
