Lecture by Dr. Carl Safina

Date/Time

Oct 7, 2013
08:00 PM

Description

Acclaimed author and environmentalist Dr. Carl Safina has seen what lies ahead for the oceans – and for us.

Hear his thoughts on Mon., Oct. 7 when he kicks off a new lecture series at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.  In an 8 p.m. talk titled, “The Ocean and You,” Safina will discuss “how the future of living with nature and the durability of human dignity are increasingly intertwined.”

Safina is a respected author and oceans advocate who has helped to lead campaigns to ban drift nets, overhaul fisheries laws, achieve a United Nations fisheries treaty, and reduce seabird and sea turtle drownings on commercial fishing lines. Along the way, his writings have made him a leading voice on humanity’s relationship with nature.

The event opens the Aquarium’s lineup of 2013-14 lectures, which will feature a number of other notable presenters, including Emmy-winning nature-show host Jeff Corwin on Nov. 6 and celebrated zookeeper Jack Hanna on May 7.

Tickets for Safina’s talk are $10 ($8 for members).
