Discover how the ocean’s health is tied to ours, with marine biologist and ocean advocate Jane Lubchenco! Dr. Lubchenco made history in 2009 as the first woman to lead the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In this free evening science talk, she’ll take stock of the challenges facing our global ocean, while highlighting some of the solutions already underway to combat them. She’s also reveal how the ocean’s health and prosperity are tied to ours.
