Public talks and lectures
The Humpback Whale Research Foundation offers a programme of talks and lectures as a way to promote the appreciation and understanding of these wonderful animals. It also enables the Foundation to raise much needed funds for conducting field research studies and to be able to offer opportunities for both students and members of the public to be actively involved in humpback whale field research.
Any of these talks are suitable for groups who are looking for speakers or after dinner presentations for lovers of natural history, or simply wanting something a bit different. We also like to work with other charitable organisations to help raise much needed funds for good causes – ours and yours! If you are trying to raise funds for your good cause, get in touch and let's see how we can work together to create a really memorable and worthwhile charitable event.
