Tiny Giants: Marine microbes revealed on a grand scale
Thursday, January 15, 2015 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The invisible world of marine microbes will be revealed through a photographic art exhibit that unveils the intricate details of microscopic creatures that are vital to our very existence. They produce half of the oxygen we breathe, are the basis of food for the entire marine food web from fish to whales, and are helping to mitigate the effects of climate change.
We invite you to see their exquisite, intricate beauty in photographs taken at three scales. Then, learn of their important contributions via short presentations by Dr. Graham Shimmield, Executive Director of Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, and Dr. Nigella Hillgarth, President and CEO of the New England Aquarium. Afterwards, enjoy a glass of wine and a meal with scientists from Bigelow Laboratory and the New England Aquarium, who share a passion and commitment to protect all ocean inhabitants, large and small.
We hope that you will join us for this unique special event.
Tickets: $50, includes exhibit, wine, appetizers, and dinner.
