Channel Islands Maritime Museum




Oxnard, CA: The Channel Islands Maritime Museum is proud to welcome Marine Biologist and Naturalist Holly Lohuis to its 2020 Speaker Series on Wednesday, February 19th, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. She will be speaking on “Embracing Change Through Ocean Exploration: Complexities of Ocean Environments and the Inspiration for a Sustainable Future of Our Oceans.”

The biological diversity of marine habitats is threatened by the activities of one species: humans. Holly Lohuis will highlight the many lessons the ocean can teach us on how we all can take part in the global solution of creating a sustainable future. “Jacques Cousteau used to always say people only protect what they love. It’s my job to give people that sense of understanding so they have their own emotional connection to the ocean,” says Lohuis. Admission to the Speaker Series is free for CIMM members, $7.00 for non-members, $5.00 for seniors (65+), and is free for children under 12.

And, more recently, with Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s “Ocean Connections and Marine Science” as an Islands Packers naturalist to the Channel Islands National Park, and the Ritz-Carlton Bacara’s Jean-Michel Ambassadors of the Environment program.
