ENC Adult Speaker Series: Changing the World through Community Based Restoration Projects
Thursday, March 23, 2017
6:00-7:00 pm: Open House with appetizers and wine
Join Capt. Nancy L. Caruso, Marine Biologist and Founder of Get Inspired, to learn about changing the world through community based restoration projects. Nancy will tell us about her work restoring Orange County’s giant kelp forests, white seabass, and green abalone to our coastal ecosystem.
After completing a 15 month pilot project to use large adult abalone as a technique for restoring green abalone populations along our coast, Nancy has just begun a massive 10 year project to restore them with the help of public aquaria, museums, and 6,000 southern California students in their classrooms. This project will educate millions of people about how, in one human lifetime, we nearly ate the abalone to extinction and how we can all work together to bring them back. Read more about Nancy HERE.
