DCP Deep Dive: Sperm Whale Reproduction & Society

Sperm whales are well known for being deep-diving predators with extraordinary hunting abilities. They also have a fascinating social system, much of which is shaped by their reproductive strategies and calf-caring behavior. This talk goes beyond DCP’s team and main study species, reviewing what scientists currently know about sperm whale sociality and reproduction, as well as outstanding questions.
