There’s a killer at the beach—and it isn’t a great white shark. Earlier this month, more than 1 billion sea creatures were wiped out by an unprecedented heat wave in the Pacific Northwest. The coastal devastation was discovered by marine ecologist Christopher Harley, and it became a top news story overnight.

At the next Secret Science Club, Christopher Harley probes the depths of climate change’s impact on our coastlines. He also discusses the fascinating lives of the multitudes of marine animals—sea stars, mussels, hermit crabs, and tiny sea cucumbers—that make their homes along the shore.

Before & After
--Mix up our coastal cocktail of the night, the SSC Surf Rider… (recipe below!)
--Groove to surf music and whale song
--Bring your questions for the live Q&A

Christopher Harley is a marine ecologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He researches why plants and animals live where they do, how they interact, and how their distributions will shift as a result of global climate change. He’s particularly interested in tide pools and the ecosystems of rocky coastlines and how they are affected by warming temperatures, ocean acidification, and changes in salinity and carbon dioxide concentration.

This is a FREE event.
