A View into the Secret Lives of Animals on the Swim

April 4, 2017 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Through observing systems and telemetry, scientists are discovering marvelous adaptations in how marine animals contend with seawater, which both opposes and leverages locomotion as animals swim, dive, lunge, or simply stay put.
