State of the Ocean presentations

State of the Ocean science talks are informational and inspirational presentations on the latest scientific understanding of the ocean.  Topics span global issues such as ocean acidification to regional changes impacting our fisheries off northern California. 

Farallon Institute scientists work on the atmosphere, physical ocean, and the complex marine food web from phytoplankton to whales.  They have a broad understanding of ocean ecology and are experts at understanding the latest scientific research and communicating what it all means to engaged community members.

State of the Ocean presentations are community events and all are invited.  Invitations will also be sent directly to elected officials and the press.  Notified of the broader public will be via press releases, posts to online neighborhood news sites, and through community message boards.
