Why Whales are Weird, Wacky, and Wonderful – Dr. Joy Reidenberg

Who doesn’t like whales?  They’re awesome!  This talk will dive into the wild world of their weird anatomy, wacky evolutionary story, and wonderful adaptations.  Through the science of comparative anatomy, you will learn about what makes whales (including dolphins and porpoises) unique.  We’ll explore why their body differs from other animals, how it functions underwater, and what we can learn from this to benefit human medicine and technology.
