Michael Brooke has visited every corner of the world in his lifelong pursuit of seabirds. Thanks to the development of increasingly sophisticated and miniaturized devices that can track the birds’ every movement and behaviour, it is now possible to observe the mysterious lives of these remarkable creatures as never before. Michael Brooke draws on his own experiences and insights to shed light on the elusive seafaring lives of albatrosses, frigate birds, cormorants, and other ocean wanderers.
Where do puffins go in the winter? How deep do penguins dive? From how far away can an albatross spot a fishing vessel worth following for its next meal?
This riveting talk, by the Strickland Curator of Ornithology at the University Museum of Zoology, Cambridge, will be followed by an opportunity to purchase, and have signed, Michael’s most recent work, Far From Land.
