At 2 pm, scientist, researcher and storyteller Marah Hardt will entertain us with highlights from her popular science book Sex in the Sea exploring the staggering ways life begets life beneath the waves. Beyond a deliciously voyeuristic excursion, Sex in the Sea uniquely connects the timeless topic of sex with the timely issue of sustainable oceans. Through overfishing, climate change, and ocean pollution we are disrupting the creative procreation that drives the wild abundance of life in the ocean. With wit and scientific rigor, Hardt introduces us to the researchers and innovators who study the wet and wild sex lives of ocean life and offer solutions that promote rather than prevent, successful sex in the sea. Marine-Valentine themed family activities all afternoon from 1: 30 - 4:00 pm.
