Join Professor Cassandra Brooks as she tells stories from the bottom of the world and her efforts to protect it. Brooks will share imagery and stories from research expeditions to Antarctica, including the challenges of conducting science operations in the windiest, coldest, and most extreme environment on earth; and the incredible array of superbly adapted wildlife that live in the Southern Ocean. She will also share the remarkable story of how she worked alongside a coalition of millions to protect the Ross Sea, Antarctica and how it now stands as the world’s largest marine protected area. Come to CU on the Weekend and listen about Antarctica, and how beyond its extreme beauty, it also serves as a critically important global commons which is threatened by climate change and commercial fishing. Brooks is working to safeguard this place and invites you to join her by learning more.
