Humpback whale song recorded off the Outer Hebrides coast will be analysed at a talk in Taigh Chearsabhagh later this month.

Dr Natalie Sinclair, a marine biologist and National Geographic Explorer, will discuss her findings, the world of whale communications, and its significance for conservation efforts on Wednesday, June 26.

She will be joined by artist Sam Gare and musician/researcher Alex South, who will introduce their upcoming work responding to the stranding of 55 pilot whales in North Tolsta in July 2023. 

The talks, part of the Outer Hebrides Wildlife Festival, will be followed by a Q&A session. The Challenger Society for Marine Science supports the event.
