*Ticketholders also receive free, after-hours access to the Museum's special exhibition Whales: Giants of the Deep, from 6-7 pm. Researchers are racing to uncover the implications for the Artic of rapidly vanishing polar ice -- and they're enlisting help from the very creatures that stand to gain the most from their discoveries: narwhals, and bowhead and beluga whales, three of the most elusive species on Earth. Join a riveting discussion with explorers and scientists who are using daring new tactics to "recruit" these animals, featuring spectacular photographs, rare footage, and musical performances inspired by whale song. Hosted by Bill Ritter with scientists Kristen L. Laidre, Kate Stafford, Scott McVay, Sarah Robertson, and musical performance by Garth Stevenson. Presented in collaboration with the World Science Festival.
