November 6, 2020

NOAA's Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and the Greater Farallones Association present a virtual humpback whale song & seti* soirée! - a free event! Saturday Nov. 14 from 7-8:30 p.m.

The study of animal communication challenges our ideas of intelligence and informs the *Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) in the universe. 

Among the most fascinating and sophisticated of vocalizations are the songs and sounds of humpback whales. Laurance Doyle, Ph.D., Research Scientist with SETI Institute will share his work studies of humpbacks to understand the communications that exist throughout Planet Earth–and beyond–at the 7:30 pm lecture. Soiree activities begin at 7:00pm, followed by the lecture. Surprise gift with optional registration. Recommended for ages 16+. The event is free! Questions, contact Sara Heintzelman at
