Leading marine biologists David Gruber and Diva Amon offer a glimpse into the ocean’s greatest depths and its fascinating creatures. Gruber searches the oceans for bioluminescent and biofluorescent marine species, and designs delicate, noninvasive tools to study and interact with deep-sea life. Diva Amon participates in expeditions around the world to study the unusual animals living in a variety of deep-sea habitats and how they are impacted by humans.

Nat Geo Live  Virtual Speaker Series events are open to guests of all ages. Parents and guardians are advised to use their own judgment based on the description of each event.
