Wild Science: What Lives in Our Oceans and Where?

Daphne Fautin, curator
Oceans cover two-thirds of the globe's surface and represent the largest habitat on earth, but we have only the most general knowledge of what lives in them. Join curator Daphne Fautin for an introduction to the monumental effort to bring together 2000 scientists from more than 70 countries for the Census of Marine Life. The effort to create an inventory of ocean life will serve as a baseline for understanding an unknown part of the planet that affects the lives of all of us, whether we live in Tahiti or Lawrence.
