National Aquarium Lecture Series Features Marine Filmmaker Bob Talbot


The National Aquarium’s 2014 Marjorie Lynn Bank Lecture Series will feature world-renowned marine photographer, filmmaker and environmentalist, Bob Talbot, at its April 22nd lecture event, “The Power of Film: Inspiring Action for Monterey Bay.”

Talbot uses the power of film to advocate for National Marine Sanctuaries and to tell a story of change and recovery in Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. In Talbot’s remarkable career, he has combined his unique visual style and storytelling ability with state-of-the-art entertainment technologies to create intimate ocean experiences on film. National Aquarium visitors can enjoy Talbot’s work at the entrance to the Blue Wonders wing on the video wall.

The National Aquarium is proud to partner with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of National Marine Sanctuaries and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation (NMSF) to offer a glimpse into contemporary ocean issues in this exciting yearlong lecture series. The series will continue on May 7th with “Humpback Whale Rescue in the Hawaiian Islands” featuring Ed Lyman, the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary’s Large Whale Entanglement Response Coordinator.
