Scripps Institute Researcher to Talk About Marine Mammal Communication – Coronado Community READ – Mar. 12

Whales are abundant off of the California coast, although sometimes they can be difficult to see from the beach. Scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography attempt to understand the communication of marine mammals (like Tova from Remarkably Bright Creatures), solely by listening. Come learn about whale communication and hear their beautiful songs with Dr. Vanessa ZoBell from the Scripps Whale Acoustics lab.

Dr. Zobell will be giving this talk on Tuesday, March 12, 2024 at 6:30 pm in the Winn Room at the Coronado Public Library. This is one of the many events taking place part of the annual Coronado Community READ. For more information on this event and more, please visit cplevents.org.
