Women's Club virtual speaker Dr. Terrie Williams

Join the UCSC Women's Club for The Dolphin's Smile: UCSC Marine Mammal science during a fire-evacuated, locked down Summer presented by Dr. Terrie Williams, Director of the Center for Marine Mammal Research and Conservation at UCSC and the Director of Research Initiatives at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center.

Dr. Williams says of her talk: "Marine mammal science is challenging in the best of times. This year proved to be a major test for the Marine Mammal Physiology team as fires and COVID-19 threatened to derail science at Long Marine Lab.  Despite it all, the team prevailed and, in the process, discovered how diving marine mammals provide clues about reducing the effects of COVID-19 in humans."

While so many of us undertook the huge challenges to evacuate our households last summer, and again now in the face of winter storms, we will be amazed to hear of the herculean task of evacuating large marine mammals and smaller aquaria creatures along with some insights into Dr. William’s research.

All are welcome for this presentation which will be delivered via Zoom. All current club members will receive the Zoom info via email. Any non-members, please email Andrea Cohen, acohen@ucsc.edu, for the Zoom information.
