SCIENCE ON SCREEN® - THE LONELIEST WHALE
THE LONELIEST WHALE: THE SEARCH FOR 52 is a cinematic quest to find the "52 Hertz Whale," which scientists believe has spent its entire life in solitude calling out at a frequency that is different from any other whale. As the film embarks on this engrossing journey, audiences will explore what this whale's lonely plight can teach us -- not just about our changing relationship to the oceans, but to each other. This is the only film that set out in search of 52.
Prior to the film, marine biologist Aran Mooney from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute will give a presentation entitled
“Marine Mammal Hearing: the importance of sound and their sensitivity to noise.”
