Keep the spirit of Earth Day alive, with free Earth Optimism-inspired talks from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. Global trade is enabling invasive species to cross borders via shipping at unprecedented speeds. But it’s also triggered the rise of new technologies to combat them. In this talk, SERC marine biologist Greg Ruiz will highlight some of the latest efforts to track and clean up the ballast water in ship hulls—a key way invasive species have crossed oceans—and prevent future invasions.
