April 16: Marine Mammals in a Changing Sea: Sentinels or Sitting Targets?
What do marine mammals need to survive? How may climate change impact their ability to make a good living in the ocean? Does it matter if the mammals live in the Arctic or Antarctic? Join us as Dr. Jennifer Burns, professor of biology at University of Alaska Anchorage, describes the new technologies that are enabling scientists to collect real-time information about ocean conditions and the marine mammal physiological characteristics that may limit their ability to respond to shifts in oceanographic conditions.
