University tutor gives presentation at Natural History Museum

Trevor Day has been invited to give a multimedia children’s presentation, Whales Ahoy!, at the Natural History Museum, London, on Sunday 25 March.

Trevor is a Life Sciences writer who has been teaching various courses in the University’s Lifelong Learning programme for eight years and who is also completing a PhD in the Department of Education.

The event follows the launch of Trevor’s latest book, Whale Watcher, which is published by the museum (See related links).

The highly illustrated guide shows all of the world’s whales, dolphins and porpoises and reveals where, when and how you can see many of them. The book also explains how you can begin to interpret whale behaviour and what you can do to help conserve whales.

Mr Day is writer or co-author of more than 40 published books. He has written about his exploits with whales, dolphins and sharks for various newspapers and magazines, including the Telegraph, Geographical and the Economist.

The Natural History Museum event is open to children and families who are members of the museum. (See related links).

Trevor said: “The presentation will involve various exhibits and props, such as dolphin and porpoise teeth, a dolphin skeleton, a bicycle pump, a bucket of water, and some strange sounds and smells.”
