This talk is at Penobscot Marine Museum’s Main Street Gallery, 40 East Main Street, Searsport, Maine. Tickets are $8 for museum members and Searsport residents, and $10 for non-members.

The World Ocean Observatory advocates for the ocean through independent, responsible, apolitical science, and is dedicated to advancing public understanding of ocean issues through institutional collaboration and partnerships, pro-active programs, and connection with individual subscribers around the world. It was founded in 2004 as a recommendation of the 1998 Independent World Commission on the Future of the Oceans. Peter Neill has also served as President of the South Street Seaport Museum, New York, and as Director for Maritime Preservation for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. He is a Trustee of Penobscot Marine Museum.
