Join deep-sea explorer Edith Widder and the Vancouver Aquarium for an insightful talk on the discovery of the giant squid.

Dr. Edith Widder is a deep-sea explorer and MacArthur Fellow who specializes in the study of bioluminescence (the light chemically produced by fireflies and many ocean organisms). She has been a leader in helping to design and invent new submersible instrumentation, and equipment to enable unobtrusive deep-sea observations. Her innovations have produced footage of rare sharks, jellyfish, and crustaceans, as well as led to the discovery of a new species of large squid in 2004 and in 2012 the first ever recordings of the giant squid, Architeuthis, in its natural habitat.
