Dr. Lorelei Crerar is Dr. Chris Parsons’s guest this week. Dr. Crerar talks about how Georg Steller discovered the Steller’s sea cow, and about its extinction.
They also talk about the “bigfoot” of the oceans – the mythical sea monkey that Steller reported seeing.
They also talk about Dr. Crerar’s research that discovered a new population of Steller’s sea cow that went extinct in the middle ages, and the trade of sea cow bone, or “mermaid ivory”. During her research, she discovered that some of this “mermaid ivory’ actually came from protected whale and dolphins.
