Elect to hear MCAF ocean heroes speak at the Aquarium on November 4

The Aquarium is honored to be hosting Pew Marine Fellows and grantees of our Marine Conservation Action Fund Gill Braulik, Ph.D., and Rohan Arthur, Ph.D., for guest lectures at 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, November 4, 2014.

Dr. Braulik will tell the story of her 12 years working against the odds and often in hostile environments studying endangered Indus River dolphins that are subject to a myriad of threats, from construction of mega-dams to intensive fishing to heavily polluted waters.

Dr. Arthur focuses his research on coral reefs and the uncertain future they face due to threats such as overfishing and climate change. He will string together narratives from Indian Ocean reefs to build a case for incidental conservation where the goals of reef resilience emerge as happy accidents of apparently unrelated community or economic processes.
