The New England Aquarium Lecture Series welcomes National Geographic Young Explorer and aspiring eco-journalist Sruthi Gurudev. Since her first encounter with coral reef bleaching as a teen, Gurudev has believed it’s never too soon to start helping the ocean. At the age of 22, and with a grant from the National Geographic Society, she founded the digital magazine "An Hour in the Deep." A forward-looking, solutions-oriented publication, it is a hub for young people interested in sharing stories about ocean conservation and sustainable solutions. Join us for a talk about youth-led conservation efforts, eco-journalism, and the role powerful stories play in motivating us to protect the planet.

Doors of NEAq's Simons Theatre open at 6:00 p.m. Cash bar. The lecture begins promptly at 6:30 p.m.
