The Aquatic Mammals of New York City (Webinar)

Apologies, this event has already taken place.
How To Get Here
This event is now over. In case you missed it,  the “Aquatic Mammals of NYC” webinar with Wild City NYC author Thomas Hynes is now available on our YouTube channel


Join author Thomas Hynes for a free evening zoom webinar on Wednesday, January 26 at 7:00pm featuring “The Aquatic Mammals of New York City”!

New York City is an ideal habitat for countless species. However, centuries of pollution had driven most of these animals away. In the last 50 years, though, thanks to cleaner conditions and stricter environmental regulations, many species have returned, including several mammals who call the water home. This talk will discuss the return of beavers, humpback whales, harbor seals, and dolphins to New York City.


Thomas Hynes is the author of Wild City: A Brief History of New York in 40 Animals. His writing has been featured in the New York Daily NewsGothamistSierra ClubThe Awl, and Business Insider. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and their son. Follow Thomas at @WildCityNYC on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
