Safina Center Creative Affiliate Lori Marino discusses “Who Cetaceans Are” and more at UQAM/ISC 2018 Summer School in Animal Cognition

June 26 @ 8:00 am - July 6 @ 5:00 pm

At the UQAM/ISC 2018 Summer School in Animal Cognition, Safina Center Creative Affiliate Lori Marino will present current knowledge about who dolphins, whales and porpoises are: research on cetacean brains, self-awareness (including mirror self-recognition and metacognition) and what these capacities mean for their adaptation to their natural life in the oceans. She will discuss examples of how cetacean psychology is expressed through family bonds, social complexity and cultural traditions.

Lori will participate in three events on Monday, July 2:

Who Dolphins Are (Monday Jul 02 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM)

Panel: Mammals All, Great and Small (Monday Jul 02 02:00 PM to 03:30 PM)
