Get a glimpse into the ocean’s greatest depths—and the fascinating creatures that live there—with two leading marine biologists. David Gruber searches the oceans for bioluminescent and biofluorescent marine species and designs delicate and noninvasive tools for studying and interacting with deep-sea life. Diva Amon participates in expeditions around the world to study the unusual animals living in a variety of deep-sea habitats—and how humans impact them. Through stories and conversation, they’ll shine a light on this dark, cold, and mysterious world.
Diva Amon is a Trinbagonian-British deep-sea biologist working at the nexus of science, policy, and communication. She is a 2020 National Geographic Emerging Explorer, a Scientific Associate at the Natural History Museum in London, and a Director and Founder of SpeSeas.
David is a marine biologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer and professor at the City University of New York. Gruber discovered the first biofluorescent sea turtle and developed a “shark-eye” camera to gain a shark’s perspective of the underwater world.
This performance is streamed live and will not be available to watch once finished.
