The public appetite for information about whales seems inexhaustible.  But how did we obtain this information in the first place.  How did we get to know about whales?

The American Cetacean Society’s Oregon Chapter presents an online talk by Uko Gorter, American Cetacean Society president and a natural history illustrator specializing in marine mammals, will address precisely this question, as he delivers a talk on the history of “cetology,” or the science of whales.  The presentation takes place on Saturday, May 1, 10 a.m.  It is free and open to all, but advance registration is necessary.

Gorter will discuss how a series of fascinating people shaped this branch of zoology.
