Creative Conservation: Sharing New Perspectives on Nature

The National Aquarium is proud to bring you a glimpse of habitats around the globe, each one with its own stunning landscapes and curious creatures, and each with a unique story to tell. In the 2016 Marjorie Lynn Bank Lecture Series, “Creative Conservation: Sharing New Perspectives on Nature,” we explore how words, photos and films shape the way we understand the diversity of life on our blue planet and the delicate balance that holds it all together.

Through a series of lectures, we offer the chance to meet experts championing the conservation of critical environments by sharing their narratives. Join us as we discover Earth’s wonders through the lens of environmental advocates, scientists, adventurers and above all, storytellers.
