Why We Should All Care About the Weird, Wild, and Wonderful Depths of the Sea with Dr. Sylvia Earle
The fall 2022 New England Aquarium Lecture Series kicks off with acclaimed oceanographer, explorer, and scientist Dr. Sylvia Earle. Recognized as a “Living Legend” by the Library of Congress, Dr. Earle has led more than 100 ocean expeditions and spent some 7,500 hours underwater researching marine ecosystems and the deep ocean. She will share research from her new book, National Geographic Ocean: A Global Odyssey, and make the case for why the state of our sea matters to everyone, everywhere, all of the time—regardless of where we live.
