Aaron Hirsh

Saving The Sea of Cortez : A Voyage of Discovery in the Sea of Cortez

When biologist Aaron Hirsh led 12 college students to a remote fishing village on the Sea of Cortez, they came upon a bay of dazzling beauty. But on closer investigation, they realized the marine ecosystem had been subject to a series of dramatic upheavals, shaped by fishing, development, tourism, even efforts to revive species. After weathering a hurricane and encountering a rare whale in its wake, though, they also realized the bay’s best chance of recovery may reside in our human stories, which can weave a compelling memory of the place. Hirsh, chairman of the Vermilion Sea Institute and author of Telling Our Way to the Sea, shares a revelation of unraveling ecosystems and a meditation on our changing relationships with nature—and with one another.

Presented by: Town Hall and University Book Store as part of The Seattle Science Lectures, sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU. Tickets: $5.
