On Saturday, May 22, at 2:00 p.m., Tim Kain joined the library to give a virtual presentation on ocean habitats and the animals that reside there. During the presentation, we examined the role sea creatures play within their respective marine ecosystems. Following the introduction of marine ecosystems, we took a deep dive into the fascinating lives of sharks, octopuses and coral reefs, examining their life histories, biology and their role they play in the sustainability and health of the ocean environment.
Our presenter for this virtual workshop is Tim Kain. Upon earning a degree in marine biology from Florida Institute of Technology, Kain worked at the University of Florida as a Marine Biologist studying the ecology of the wetlands of east-central coast of Florida. Upon retirement as a patent scientist, Tim joined the volunteer staff of the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago as an Exhibit Ambassador as well assisting the Shedd’s Conservation Research Group in shark research.
We hope you enjoy Sea Curiosities, an Exploration of Sharks, Octopuses, and Coral Reefs! To find out what programs are coming to the library next, visit our event calendar!
