Inspired by Nature: Designs of the future inspired by sharks, marine mammals, and nature together
Whether it’s the elegant undulations of a jellyfish or the kaleidoscopic color changes of a cephalopod, nature is the true master of design. We have much to learn from it. In this interactive live discussion, join scientists and Hawaiian experts as they share the lessons we are learning and have yet to learn from nature’s designs.
Learn how sharks and marine mammals and all of nature are inspiring the designs of the future in products, communities, and digital spaces with Daniel Kinzer, Dr. Keolu Fox, Dr. Molly Gabler - Smith, and Dr. Frank Fish as they share their passions for stewardship of nature, community knowledge, and the conservation of coral reefs.
From Shore to the Abyss: Exploration of Marine Mammal Communication and Shark Communities in the Main Hawaiian Islands
In our first leg of the brand-new expedition series From Shore to the Abyss, we are teaming up with (and receiving funding from) the National Geographic Society to study shallow waters near Maui and Hawaiʻi island. Project teams on this leg will combine cutting-edge technologies with indigenous Hawaiian knowledge to increase knowledge and understanding of marine life. The work will focus on sharks and marine mammals—apex predators who are culturally significant to the Hawaiian people.
