Head's up if you dig these guys. Everyone's invited to attend a public talk about Killer Whales around Marion Island, by NMMU's Dr Ryan Reisinger. Venue is Bayworld next week on Tuesday 29th of March at 17:15 for 17:30.
Dr Reisinger is a world-renowned specialist on killer whales and a post-doctorate fellow at the Institute of Coastal and Marine Research, at NMMU. He will be talking about his amazing experience with Killer Whales on Marion Island.
Killer Whales are absolutely fascinating animals. They are the ocean's top predators, among the world most widely distributed animals, and have fascinating foraging and social behaviours which vary from place to place.
Dr Reisinger will talk about these aspects, with examples from his research on sub-Antarctic Marion Island. He will also talk about a new project with which they are hoping to map important habitat for killer whales, seabirds and seals around Marion Island using tracking data.
