Inside Secrets of the Whales

Tue April 23, 2024
@ 7:30 pm
Whales have singing competitions, have regional cuisines, live together in language-based clans and even take vacations at their favorite beaches in the summer. They are an alien intelligence living on Earth that are more like us than we ever imagined.

About the Event

Dive into the epicenter of whale culture with visual storyteller Brian Skerry to experience the extraordinary lives of whales. This visual odyssey shows us how whales are far more complex—and more like us—than we ever imagined. Cutting-edge research reveals that whales celebrate identity, joy, community and mourn the loss of those they love. Through generational learning, whale parents and grandparents teach their offspring not only the skills they need to survive, but also ancient, valued, family traditions. Blending intimate photography, motion picture and extraordinary, personal experiences, Brian helps us see the planet through a new lens.
