Shane Gero, Founder and Lead Investigator, The Dominica Sperm Whale Project. Sperm whales are among the most enigmatic animals on the planet. The largest of the tooth whales, they have the largest brains of any animal, they are among the deepest divers of all mammals, they “see” in the darkness of the deep ocean with the most powerful natural sonar system housed in their nose, and they consume as much squid in a year as all of humanity’s modern mechanized fisheries on all species combined! Shane Gero has been tracking families of sperm whales for the last nine years off the Caribbean island of Dominica. Having spent thousands of hours in their company observing their behavior, Gero has come to know these leviathans from the deep as individuals with personalities, as brothers and sisters or as mothers and babysitters. register here: http://support.neaq.org/site/Calendar?id=104169&view=Detail Hide
