Whale biologist Dr. Alex Werth, a professor at Virginia’s Hampden-Sydney College, is the April scientist-in-residence at the Sitka Sound Science Center. He and Jan Straley discuss upcoming events at the Science Center. Werth hopes to talk to as many Sitkans as possible over the course of the month about how they relate to the ocean, and is offering to speak with school and community groups, with a special emphasis on the human genome project, evolution, and marine conservation.
