How to speak Whale: the future of communication with animals
A life threatening encounter with a whale when kayaking led to biologist, wildlife filmmaker and Highgate local Tom Mustill’s thrilling scientific investigation into the pioneering world of animal communication, where remote robots and artificial intelligence are changing our relationship with marine animals forever.
With sound and video recordings fresh from the sea he’ll present new discoveries from expeditions underway now and explain what these mean for our relationship to whales and other species.
How to Speak Whale, A Voyage into the Future of Animal Communication was a New Yorker Best Book of 2022 and Winner of the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award.
