It is often said that we know less about the depths of our seas than we do about the moon, but thankfully, there are people who have been studying the oceans for years and so can help to add to our knowledge of marine life.
Artist, author and naturalist James Prosek is one expert who is on a mission to educate the masses about the wonders of the seas - and guests at Boston hotels can catch up with him at the New England Aquarium on May 2nd.
That evening, he well deliver a talk entitled Perspectives of an Artist/Naturalist as part of the Aquarium Lecture Series.
It coincides with the publication of his latest book Ocean Fishes, which provides information on 35 important species that could be lost to us in the future due to issues like pollution and overfishing.
He will also touch on his knowledge of eels based on his own research, so it is sure to be a fascinating night.
It couldn't be easier for residents of the Millennium Bostonian Hotel Boston to get to the aquarium, as it is just an eight-minute walk away via Clinton Street.
An exhibition at a museum in Boston will show how the poses of people in Renaissance paintings are significant.
