Our Changing Oceans: The Past, Present & Future of Whales
Speaker: Nick Pyenson

Whales fill us with terror, awe, and affection–explore these magnificent creatures with Smithsonian researcher Nick Pyenson. Why did it take whales over 50 million years to evolve to such big sizes, and how do they eat enough to stay that big? How did their ancestors return from land to the sea–and what can their lives tell us about evolution as a whole? Importantly, in the sweepstakes of human-driven habitat and climate change, will whales survive?

Audiences are invited to celebrate International Darwin Day at the ROM with this inspiring annual lecture. International Darwin Day inspires people around the world to reflect and act on the principles of intellectual bravery, perpetual curiosity, scientific thinking, and hunger for truth as embodied in Charles Darwin.
