Zoologist Lucy Cooke’s talk at the DLWP about killer whales and menopause has sold out!

Kinship with a Killer Whale: Matriarchs and Menopause sells out

HOT’s Zelly Restorick likes anything where a human is demonstrating the common ground we share with the natural world. Anything beyond the homocentric world we seem to inhabit. 

I wish we could see/know/deeply understand :

the common ground we all share

the different beautiful skills, talents and abilities we all have – as unique individuals of all species.

there’s not just a category called ‘Killer Whale’: just individual killer whales, just like you are a unique human being.

What a world that would be!

Kinship with a Killer Whale: Matriarchs and Menopause is a talk given by zoologist, broadcaster and author, Lucy Cooke, at De La Warr Pavilion on Thursday 5 March.

Humans and orcas are unique in the animal kingdom in living beyond their reproductive life. Join us for a gallery tour followed by a talk by zoologist, broadcaster and best-selling author Lucy Cooke exploring how much we have in common with these intelligent and highly social cetaceans.

The talk is now SOLD OUT, but the exhibition runs until 3 May.

The artist is  Zadie Xa exhibition and her exhibition entitled Child of Magohalmi and the Echoes of Creation  uses water and marine ecologies as metaphors for exploring the unknown and the concept of homeland. It also includes a giant soft sculpture of a killer whale .
