Craig Foster & Living on Earth: Underwater Wild
The underwater world of wonder that inspired the Academy Award-winning documentary My Octopus Teacher is the star of filmmaker Craig Foster's new book, Underwater Wild. Through the eyes of Craig and his diving partner and co-author, Ross Frylinck, we learn how to track sea hares, cuttlefish, and limpets, and witness strange new behaviors never before documented in marine biology. We realize that a whole world of wonder, and an innate wildness within us all, emerge anew when we simply observe.

The nationally-syndicated public radio show & podcast Living on Earth presents this virtual conversation with Craig Foster alongside the New England Aquarium, the Lowell Institute, and the UMass Boston School for the Environment, as part of the Living on Earth Book Club. This event will be pre-recorded due to ongoing power outages in South Africa.
