Webinar: Migrations Great and Small – Whales and Plankton
- This event has passed.
September 20 at 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Let’s look beyond the bird world and explore two very different kinds of migration that come together in the ocean. Although the word migration often brings to mind animals like birds or caribou crossing continents, this webinar with the Lab’s K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics will explore the “vertical migration” of tiny plankton called copepods from the seafloor to the ocean surface and back again. During their time near the surface, these abundant creatures are a key food of endangered North Atlantic right whales during their own migrations.
This webinar is part of our annual Migration Celebration. Join us for two weeks of online events, family-friendly programs, and ideas and resources for your own migration activities. Visit the Migration Celebration website for the full schedule of events and recorded webinars.
