The Sounds of Whales and Dolphins.

Why do scientists eavesdrop on whales and dolphins? What can the recordings of whales and dolphins tell us? How do you even record the sound that these creatures make?

Two scientists from NIWA will give you the answers. Dr Giacomo Giorli is a marine mammal acoustician studying marine acoustics to understand the ecology, distribution, and habitat selection of marine mammals. Olivia Price is a marine physics technician who constructs the scientific equipment needed to study our oceans.

Giacomo and Olivia will take you on a journey exploring the science of marine acoustics, the sounds of whales and dolphins, and the chilly business of researching in Antarctica.
