The next Hatfield Science on Tap will be held Thursday, April 21 at 6:00 pm and features Mauricio Cantor from the Marine Mammal Institute. His talk entitled, “Inventive feeding tactics can shape dolphin societies,” covers creative ways dolphins catch a bite underwater and how these inventive tactics can profoundly shape individuals’ lives and societies.
Cantor’s talk will explore how dolphins navigate their physical environments to find food and acquire skills to best handle their selected items. Dolphins have the additional challenge of navigating their social environments to decide when to race, share or fight for their food. By combining exceptional cognitive and learning abilities with a remarkable social life, dolphins are famous for inventive solutions to these foraging challenges.
