Cephalopod Week is back for another event series to cephalo-brate our favorite underwater invertebrates!
For over 10 years, Science Friday has hosted Cephalopod Week, and along the way, we’ve partnered with science centers, museums, local radio stations, aquariums, and amazing gathering spaces to highlight these eight-armed creatures and the outstanding, octopus-obsessed people who study and care for them.
Are you curious about cuttlefish? Stunned by squid? Overwhelmed by octopuses? On June 28, join us at 6:00pm at the Georgia Public Broadcasting studios for an intimate evening celebration of these amazing invertebrates with the host of Science Friday, Ira Flatow!
He’ll be in conversation with two local scientific experts in undersea life and cephalopod care: Emily Greene, senior aquarist at the Georgia Aquarium, has cared for cephalopods, sea jellies, turtles and other animals as part of her nearly 10-year marine husbandry career, and Nicole Johnston, biology lecturer at Spelman College, teaches students about coral reefs, undersea ecosystems, and ocean acidification due to climate change—and strives to keep people (like you!) up-to-date about the health of our oceans.
