Take a journey down South, to the breeding grounds of the grey whale, as you spend an evening conversing with Dr. Jorge Urbán, an expert in gray and humpback whales of the Mexican Pacific. Whether you are curious to learn more about the 'friendly' behavior of our summer residents, or calf and cow relationships, or you are curious about the recent reports of unusual mortality events, Jorge will be answering your questions. This is a unique opportunity to experience the full circle of the grey whales migration and we hope you can join us.
Dr. Jorge Urbán is a Professor of the Department of the Coastal and Marine Sciences of the Autonomous University of Baja California Sur at La Paz, B.C.S., where he has worked for 30 years. He began his research on whales in 1982 when he initiated the first long term study on humpbacks in Mexico. Jorge has presented papers on this topic at more than 70 international meetings and has written more than 100 scientific publications about the great whales and dolphins of the Gulf of California. He has special interest in the fin, humpback, and gray whales, as well as beaked whales from the Mexican Pacific.
