DCP Deep Dive: To Touch or Not To Touch – The Quirks of Beluga Contact

In this Deep Dive, DCP’s good friend Dr. Heather Hill answers questions like, How do belugas contact one another? How do belugas use contact in their social interactions? Are there any differences between wild belugas and belugas in human care? Dr. Hill is a comparative psychologist and full professor of psychology at St. Mary’s University who likes to study marine mammal behavior and cognition.

This program is geared toward ages 14 and up, but all will enjoy it.
