About the Event

Dive into the epicenter of whale culture with underwater photographer Brian Skerry to experience the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures of five whale species: belugas, humpbacks, narwhals, orcas, and sperm whales. This visual odyssey shows us how whales are far more complex—and more like us—than we ever imagined. Bringing to life the complex relationships that exist between humans and wildlife, Brian’s incredible images also depict a planet struggling for balance. Join Brian to learn where we are getting it right and why there is still hope.
