PANEL + FILM: MY OCTOPUS TEACHER

Octopuses are among the world’s most intelligent invertebrates. They’re also in high demand as a food product, with increasing efforts to commercially farm octopuses for human consumption. This Friday, September 24 @ 7 PMBecca Franks, research scientist of environmental studies at New York University, and Jennifer Jacquet, associate professor of environmental studies at New York University, will lead an engaging discussion on octopus intelligence, inspiring us to take action and protect this remarkable species.

Following the talk, we will screen MY OCTOPUS TEACHER. This 2020 Netflix Original documentary film, directed by Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed, documents a year spent by filmmaker Craig Foster forging a relationship with a wild common octopus in a South African kelp forest. At the 93rd Academy Awards, it won the award for Best Documentary.

This free event takes place outdoors on our West Lawn, so please bring your own beach chair or blanket. In the event of rain, this event will be moved indoors and proof of vaccination will be required.
