“A blue whale can’t even see its tail most of the time, but it can communicate with another blue whale a thousand miles away.”
The oceans are alive with song. Engineer-turned-whale scientist Christopher Clark is one of the sea's best listeners. In his Parley Talk, Clark explores the science of bioacoustics and the devastating ways human-induced noise pollution is silencing the sea.
Dr. Christoper Clark is director of the Bioacoustics Research Program at Cornell University and a former student of Roger Payne, the founder of Ocean Alliance. Specializing in noise pollution in the oceans, he oversees and directs a vigorous, multi-disciplinary program with the goal of giving the world’s creatures a voice on critical conservation issues.
