Denise Herzing Speaking Topics

  • Field Work with Whales and Dolphins around the World

    There are over 70 species of cetaceans, whales and dolphins, around the world. Some are cosmopolitan and others live in remote parts of the world. Researchers use various techniques to work with wild marine mammals, including photography, video, GIS, tagging and telemetry. She will describe and explore these techniques and give various examples around the world of their application.

    Depending on the audience, these topics can be combined if needed to suite the interest level.

  • Dolphin Communication and Behavior

    Dolphins use body language as well as sound to communicate to each other. Some of their sounds are audible to humans while other sounds are ultrasonic in nature. Through the use of specialized sound equipment we can "see" what dolphins are saying to each other and begin to decipher their culture and communication. Her talk includes special ways to visualize sound, audio examples, and underwater behavioral examples that are correlated with sound. She also talks about what work is left to do with dolphin communication and how we might "crack the code" of their language.

  • Dolphin Life in the Wild

    What is it like growing up as a dolphin in the wild? Dolphins have surprisingly long lives, strong friendships, and complex communication. It's no wonder people find these animals both intriguing and compelling. She describes her long term and ongoing field work in the Bahamas with a resident community of free-ranging spotted dolphins. Her talk includes detailed examples of the lives of dolphins in the wild, with photographs, sound and underwater video, and she describe the implication for humans and our planet.
