Established by Aaron Richmond in 1938, the Series has evolved into New England's major presenting organization with over 100 performance and outreach activities annually.
Researcher and writer ELLEN PRAGER has written what amounts to a “tell all” of life in the oceans. This features unusual creatures with very bizarre sex lives and lots and lots of slime. Prager has also included some amazing notes on why these creatures, strange and weird as they are, are important to humanity. Tune into tonight and learn how hagfish can tie themselves into knots; why a giant sea slug is critical to research on the human brain and why you should never, EVER eat the lobster’s tomalley. Prager’s vastly entertaining account of marine life is titled SEX, DRUGS AND SEASLIME: THE OCEAN’S ODDEST CREATURES AND WHY THEY MATTER.
