CIFAR Presents: The Walrus Talks Survival
Watch CIFAR fellows explore the adaptations and innovations that fuel life and resilience.
On November 20, CIFAR presented the second of four Walrus Talks. Held at the Phi Centre in Montreal, the theme was Survival: The adaptations and innovations that fuel life and resilience.
