A World You’ve Never Seen: Exploring the Ocean Monument off Connecticut’s Shores

Connecticut played a critical role in the 2016 designation of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument—the first and only marine national monument in the U.S. waters of the Atlantic and a beacon of climate resilience. Now we invite you to join us on Oct. 10 to celebrate the third anniversary of the marine monument in our backyard! We’re taking you on a virtual tour of the wildlife found in the monument, with a renowned research scientist as your tour guide.

Hear from Peter Auster, Senior Research Scientist at Mystic Aquarium, about research in the Monument, including photos from dives in September 2019. Watch amazing deep sea submersible footage and participate in Auster’s virtual tour and a live Q&A session with a panel of experts including Yale Professor Rob Klee, former Commissioner of CT DEEP. You’ll learn what is below the surface and why it is so important to study and protect the Monument in an era of escalating threats to our climate and oceans. Help us honor members of Connecticut’s Congressional Delegation for their pivotal role in creation of the Monument.
