Best of all - it's FREE and anyone can register!
*Note: While the first Virtual Talk was hosted via the Zoom platform, future talks will be hosted on Webinar Jam.
Our oceans are at a critical point in history, and the maritime museum has never had a more vital role in marine conservation, exploration and sharing the wonder and mystery of our oceans. Our talks offers a unique experience to immerse yourself in the cutting edge of marine science, provocative art, and controversial thought leadership – all up close and personal.
