Naomi A Rose TED talk

After a small wait, the TED talk by Naomi Rose is now online for all to be able to appreciate. Here is how it is advertised:

"As a scientist for Humane Society International and a marine mammal scientist for the Animal Welfare Institute, Rose has spent her entire career studying whales and dolphins (cetaceans) in captivity and how society’s relationship with these animals needs to change.... She brings scientific grounding to an often divisive and emotional topic. 

Her work has been profiled in the book “Death at SeaWorld” by David Kirby; she also consulted on the 2013 documentary film “Blackfish” by Gabriela Cowperthwaite."

So, if you want to hear Naomi speak on orcas click HERE.

Incidentally, Naomi is becoming increasingly well known for her work and even recognised on the streets where she is now regularly asked her for autographs and for 'selfies'.

The perils of 'selfies' is well illustrated below. (Naomi is on the right)

Incidentally, Happy Birthday Naomi Rose!
