Listening to the North: Studying How Underwater Noise Impacts Arctic Marine Mammals in a Changing Climate

Dr. William Halliday is an Associate Conservation Scientist with the Wildlife Conservation Society of Canada. In the Canadian Arctic, marine life that evolved to live in a frozen landscape is now dealing with less ice, and also the increased human activity that comes with a less-frozen seascape. In this talk, Dr. Halliday will discuss how he studies whales and seals in the Canadian Arctic using underwater listening (i.e. acoustic monitoring), and how these animals are changing their behaviours in response to decreased sea ice and increased human activities. 

We meet at 7:30 p.m. in Room 159 of the Fraser Building, University of Victoria. Everyone is welcome. Note: UVic parking is $3.50.
