The one-hour Oceans of Learning Webinar will explore our ocean. From supporting diverse marine life and ecosystems, to sustaining livelihoods and the impact of a changing ocean climate.

Filmmaker Ken O’Sullivan will share his experiences searching for blue whales, sharks and deep-water coral reefs in the North Atlantic for the documentary Ireland’s Deep Atlantic. The two-part series explores many of Ireland’s sea creatures for the first time, documenting their behaviour, in addition to investigating the health of our deep Atlantic waters.

Finn will also speak to Roberta O’Brien, the first woman in the history of the Irish Naval Service to achieve the rank of Commander in 2020. Commander O’Brien has held a wide variety of roles and appointments at sea and ashore, and was also the first female to captain an Irish warship when she assumed command of the LÉ Aisling in 2008.

Join the conversation with scientists, seafarers and sea enthusiasts.
