Dive Deeper with a Marine Biologist!
Saturdays & Sundays at 2:00 p.m.
Location: Second floor near the Coral Reef.
FREE with museum admission.
Join marine biologist Sam Couch to dive deeper into the science of our new coral reef. These 30 minute talks will feature hands-on elements, tours of our coral reef aquarium, insight from an expert, and time for questions. Each phase of the reef will have a different talk topic.
December: Think Global: Act Local – This talk will begin broadly by talking about currently successful marine conservation efforts around the world. It will then taper down to more local conservation efforts and then taper down more to what individuals can do anywhere.
January: The Birth of an Ecosystem – Marine succession, the structure and function of our aquarium
February: Success of Coral: Reproduction – Coral remain to be one of the most resilient organisms on the planet. Why? They have a bazillion ways to propagate. They can bud, through pedal laceration, fission and sexual reproduction that follows the lunar cycle! Why does it do this? How are they able to do this?
