The New England Aquarium and other “informal science venues” such as zoos and other aquariums will be ready to educate visitors about the very complex topic of climate change thanks, in part, to a grant of 5.5 million dollars from the National Science Foundation. The grant will help The New England Aquarium, a leader in climate change research, communicate the science of climate change and its impact on marine ecosystems. http://news.neaq.org/2012/08/55-million-grant-for-climate-change.html
