Sylvia Earle Lecture: The Quest for Sustainable Seas

October 18, 2017, 7:00 PM


Sylvia Earle, legendary oceanographer, acclaimed environmental scientist, and champion for ocean conservation, has been named the inaugural F. Russell Cole Distinguished Lecturer in Environmental Studies at Colby. Her public lecture, “The Quest for Sustainable Seas,” will demonstrate how the ocean provides the underpinning of our economy, health, security, and the existence of life itself. Once thought to be infinitely resilient, the ocean is in trouble, and therefore, so are we. With equal parts warning and hope, she shows us how actions we take in the next 10 years will matter more than what we do in the next one hundred years.
