We are in the Anthropocene, the geologic epoch within which humans have become for the first time in our 200,000-year history a global force. We are a dominant force not only in changing Earth’s climate, but also the cycling of nutrients, the hydrologic cycle, and a number of ocean processes and phenomena. California is experiencing all of the major impacts and has the opportunity to develop a model of how to thrive in the Anthropocene that could serve not only other states, but also other nations.

California Sea Grant Extension Specialist Luke Gardner will join some of the state’s leading experts on this topic in the Aquarium of the Pacific's Spring 2019 Aquatic Academy course.
