Whale Culture with Brian Skerry

August 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us (in-person or online) on Tuesday, August 22, 2023 at 7:00pm for a special evening lecture and elective welcome reception with photojournalist, film producer, and storyteller Brian Skerry.

Brian Skerry has spent the past 25 years exploring the world’s oceans as a National Geographic magazine photographer and film producer. His most recent work focuses on the incredible science being done on the culture of whales. This science is revealing that whales have unique cultures within their groups, much like humans. During his presentation, Brian will bring you into the world of four species of whales – Humpback, Orca, Beluga and Sperm whales – to talk about their distinct cultures and present stunning images of these amazing animals. The coverage is from his recent National Geographic magazine article, book and Disney+ series, all entitled “Secrets of the Whales.” As a bonus, Brian will also offer a sneak peek at his current project about the Gulf of Maine, a body of water which is changing rapidly due to global warming, and the implications for this region and our planet going forward.

Beginning at 5:30pm before the lecture, we invite you to join us for a special reception as we welcome Brian to Schoodic Institute. During the reception, you’ll enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and conversation with Brian to learn more about him and his exciting work. Tickets for this elective reception are $40.00/adult and $20.00/kids 12 and under (tickets available online at schoodicinstitute.org/event/brian-skerry/).

Brian’s public lecture, beginning at 7:00pm, is free and open to the public, and it will take place at Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus and online via Zoom.
