BUEI Talks: Ocean Vet – 9th Episode: Humpback Whale

June 9, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Neil and Choy get up close in rib

Neil works with a team of scientists and marine mammal toxicologists on an expedition to prove the presence of deadly toxins inside Bermuda’s mid-migratory humpback whales.
Watch Neil and his team swim with these ocean giants in a mesmerising and magical sequence in which Neil comes face to face with one of the most intelligent mammals in the ocean.
The team also deploy their aerial drone to observe a mother humpback and calf, and Choy has a dangerous encounter when he receives a report of a dead sperm whale being torn to shreds by hungry sharks.
