Club Meeting – April 26th – 7pm with Carl Safina!

Carl plans to share a couple of short readings with us, but mostly he hopes to share good conversation, rather than give a formal presentation. He will answer any and all questions about his work, including his books Becoming WildSong for the Blue Ocean, and Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel. He enjoys chatting about travels in the oceans, seabirds, fisheries management, work/life balance in a troubled world; as well as animal cognition, emotion, and culture.
Everyone is welcome to join the Monterey Bay Sea Otters Dive Club for this amazing evening.
