This year’s theme is “The Making-Of: Behind the Scenes of Science.” Our speakers will give insight into the lesser-known aspects of marine science: the serendipitous moments that inspire scientists to dive into their research; what drives their curiosity and makes them tick; the connections that link to other marine research; and lastly, what scientists do with their findings– should scientists take action and become advocates, or let the science speak for itself?

Join us for Sitka WhaleFest from November 2nd-5th, 2017!
