The 2020 Save Our Seas Distinguished Speaker Series program will feature scientists, conservationists, researchers and educators who will share their passion for our oceans in programs designed for museum guests of all ages.
This year MODS has an exciting lineup of presenters who will discuss their research-discoveries across a spectrum of topics; from sharks to manta rays, sawfish and much more! We are also bringing back our popular Shark Expert Panel Discussion and adding a Sea Turtle discussion panel which will feature prominent researchers and conservationists from across the region.
MODS will also be unveiling a new Shark Discovery Cart located near the shark exhibit within Florida Ecoscapes. This interactive learning station will enable museum guests to learn about sharks, conservation, and the amazing work supported by Save Our Seas Foundation.
Be sure to catch these programs live at MODS, or virtually via Zoom, and stop by the Shark Discovery Cart when you are here!
