Often at the end of our annual conference participants say "you should do this more often". They are in some sense correct. So, here is what we can do to stay connected and extend the conference experience through March 2017. We have planned three Follow-up Reconnecting Events that will feature the national plenary speakers that we did not have time to share at our 12th annual conference.
Note: All events will be at MSU Center. As much as possible we will partner with a local organization that is doing work related to the plenary presenter's topic. All events are FREE and part of our Monthly Free Movie Night.

Making Contact: New Approaches to Cracking the Communication of Whales and Dolphins
Monday, January 23, 2017
MSU Center 6:30 to 8:30 pm
James Nestor, an author and journalist with a passion for extreme adventure draws from his mind-boggling, multiple award-winning new book, DEEP: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us about Ourselves. He'll describe how groups of athletes and scientists plumbed ocean depths, and researchers collaborating with engineers from Apple, Google and elsewhere worked to ?crack? the cetacean language code and send back messages to these giant marine mammals - to make contact. Their weird and wondrous new discoveries might just redefine our understanding of the ocean, and of ourselves.
