In this special presentation, marine scientist-explorer-photographer-filmmaker-author Gaelin Rosenwaks will take you on a journey around the world. From satellite tagging Bluefin Tuna in the Western Atlantic Ocean to drilling ice cores in the frozen Bering Sea to the bottom of the Blue Hole in Belize, she will show you cutting-edge scientific research being conducted to understand the complexity of our ocean ecosystems. Driven by her academic background in marine science and conservation, Gaelin hopes to heighten people’s awareness and sense of responsibility to preserve the health of our planet. By employing photography and video to document her exploration, she hopes to inspire people to appreciate the beauty of our oceans and natural world. Throughout, Gaelin will touch on the themes of courage, curiosity and finding your passion. Her book, SPERM WHALES: GENTLE GOLIATHS OF THE OCEANS, will be published by Rizzoli in October.
Presentation is FREE with Lighthouse admission.
