BLUEMIND: Your Brain On Ocean

A look at the Ocean through the field of Neuroscience At The California Academy of Sciences Thursday, June 1-2, 2011

Why do books and symposia about the human brain, the most complex object in the universe, contain no mention of the ocean…. or even the rain forest? Why do books and conferences on protecting and restoring the world’s oceans and our world’s rain forests entirely overlook the field of cognitive neuroscience?  This conference is the first of it’s kind!

Underlying this project is the exploration and sharing of the way neuroscience informs our connection to our biosphere–our one blue marble–to help inspire people to LiVEBLUE.  That’s the BLUEMIND part.

BLUEMiND will forever link studies of the mind and ocean in a two-day event held at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, California, kicking off World Oceans Week 2011. BLUEMiND includes a reception on June 1st, a full day summit and a NightLife ocean party inside the academy with upwards of 4,000 people in attendance. This is the first of it’s kind, and is meant to help frame what we believe is an emerging field that unites neuroscience and ocean stewardship.

Day one and two explored the relationship between the Ocean and the brain, and brought leading neuroscientists, communicators, and citizens together to engage in this dialog.

Endangered Species Day is an opportunity for people young and old to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species and everyday actions that people can take to help protect our nation’s disappearing wildlife and last remaining open space. Protecting America’s wildlife and plants today is a legacy we leave to our children and grandchildren, so that all Americans can experience the rich variety of native species that help to define our nation.

Endangered Species Day is a time to think about the Endangered Species Act, which is one of the nation’s most controversial laws that has often pitted environmentalists against industry and private-property rights advocates.

Rare Black Lion Tamarin Monkey Born In Captivity

On March 22, 2011 one of the world’s most endangered primates was been born by Caesarean section at the headquarters of the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

“This birth is great news; monitoring and successfully delivering the baby has been a very tricky event to manage,” says Mark Brayshaw, head of Durrell’s animal collection.
