About Scientists Saving the Oceans Virtual Expedition

Expedition 1: Protecting Dolphins and Whales from Oceanic Noise

February 8-24, Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:30-4pm.
Ages 15-90+

Join the Seymour Marine Discovery Center for a unique virtual expedition as we go behind the scenes with UC Santa Cruz’s Marine Mammal Physiology Project at Long Marine Lab to explore how Dr. Terrie Williams is racing to protect dolphins and whales from oceanic noise.

• Interact with Long Marine Lab’s expert animal trainers and researchers to learn how they care for and train dolphins and seals to voluntarily participate in conservation science.
• Observe team research in action and learn how new technologies are developed to investigate animals in the wild.
• Understand how lab science underpins field research aimed at protecting narwhals and other marine mammal populations around the world.

Facilitated live through Zoom, this expedition consists of six engaging 90-minute classes. Each class session includes live-streaming time with the staff and resident animals cared for by the Marine Mammal Physiology Project at UC Santa Cruz.

Fees: Seymour Center Members $250* | Non-members: $320
