The Living Oceans Foundation is pleased to present two live presentations from the Galápagos as part of World Oceans Day, June 8, 2012!
On the June 8, 2012 at 3:30PM EST, join the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation and the Ocean Project, featuring "Her Deepness" Sylvia Earle, on a live call to the research vessel Golden Shadow in the Galápagos. This transcontinental conversation on coral reef research will include photos, videos and coral reef news direct from the sub-aquatic research site near Darwin Island. Dr. Earle and the science team will discuss current studies on rare coral reefs at the north of the Galápagos archipelago; how the Galápagos species respond to El Niño-driven temperature fluctuations; and why that may give us hope for corals’ ability to be resilient to future climate change.
Visit www.livingoceansfoundation.org to view the live webinar or come downtown to the Smithsonian's Baird Auditorium in Washington, D.C. to watch LIVE with Sylvia Earle.
In addition, at 10:00AM EST on June 8, LOF Chief Scientists, Dr. Andrew Bruckner, will be hosting an education webinar titled “The Galapagos: A unique field laboratory to assess the effects of climate change on marine environments.” This webinar is open to all high school students, teachers, and members of the public.
Both events will be streamed from the Living Oceans Foundation website. Visit www.livingoceansfoundation.org for more details. Details should be posted this week. A flyer is also attached.
Please distribute to others that may be interested.
