Amazing Trio of Scientists Talk About Whales At CEED
CEED’s series of conversations with scientists and naturalists continues on Friday, July 23rd, at 6:00 p.m. with a unique meeting of three distinguished scientists.
Dr. Carl Safina is a world-renowned author and ecologist, the first Endowed Professor for Nature and Humanity at Stony Brook University, and founding president of the not-for-profit Safina Center. His ten books include the classic Song for the Blue Ocean, and his latest, Becoming Wild; How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty, and Achieve Peace, which includes a fascinating account of the culture of sperm whales.
Gaelin Rosenwaks is a marine scientist, explorer, photographer, and filmmaker. Gaelin founded Global Ocean Exploration (GOE) to share her passion for ocean exploration, marine conservation, and photography. Her latest project on sperm whales was the cover story in the June/July 2020 issue of Outside Magazine, and she is working on a feature-length video about sperm whales.
Dr. Artie Kopelman is president, senior-scientist and one of the co-founders of the Coastal Research and Educational Society of Long Island (CRESLI). He is also a director of Save the Great South Bay. His research interests include finback, humpback, and other whales and dolphins of New York and New England. Dr. Kopelman is a State University of NY (SUNY) Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, Professor Emeritus of Science at the Fashion Institute of Technology (SUNY), and an Adjunct Lecturer specializing in Marine Mammals at SUNY Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences.
Join CEED and South Country Library on July 23rd at 6:00 p.m. to hear these amazing scientists talk about their love and respect for whales. The talk will be followed by an outdoor showing of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Generally considered to be the best of the Star Trek series, this movie features humpback whales. Watching it after hearing from scientists who know whales up close and personal will be an entirely new experience.
This event is FREE thanks in part to a grant from Suffolk County.
