Exploring the Wildest Corners of Our Ocean!

We're excited to announce the launch of our spring 2015 Marjorie Lynn Bank Lecture Series, Ocean Extremes: Wild Underwater Worlds!

Published January 27, 2015


Through invigorating lectures from scientists, filmmakers and authors, this series will take attendees to the wildest, deepest, coldest corners of the ocean, where they’ll uncover remarkable ocean habitats, unusual aquatic creatures and extreme exploration techniques!

Our series kicks off on March 19 with Dr. Doug Allan, a natural history documentary cameraman who has captured award-winning footage in some of the world's most extreme environments. He's filmed under the ice with seals in Canada and on the floe edge searching for narwhals with the Inuits.


On April 28, we'll hear from environmental scientist Dr. Jesse H. Ausubel, who will share some of the most dramatic changes in our knowledge of the ocean, including extremes of size and sound. He'll discuss some of the technologies used to learn about the ocean and what still remains unknown and unexplored.

Finally, on May 13, marine scientist and author Dr. Ellen Prager will highlight the strange and wild cast of characters that inhabit the oceans' depths and how they are connected to society in everything from our food supply to the economy, jobs and biotechnology.
