Adventure Series: Arctic Whales in a Melting World
October 17, 2013
Todd McLeish kicks off the 2013-2014 Adventure Series with his multimedia presentation, “Arctic Whales in a Melting World.” Listen as McLeish recounts his adventures studying the elusive narwhal, the northernmost whale on the planet – the whale with the seven-foot spiral tusk. Journey high above the Arctic Circle with teams of narwhal researchers seeking to solve the mysteries of the animal’s migrations and the purpose of its tusk.
Learn about the importance of narwhals in Inuit culture and how the warming planet is affecting the species. You’ll also hear about the many other unique animals living in the narwhal’s frozen world, from walruses and polar bears to bowhead and beluga whales. Copies of McLeish’s new book Narwhals will be available for purchase and signing.
