On the morning of May 8th, Members of the U.S. Congress will meet with representatives of the Cuban Interests Section along with Cuban and American marine scientists in an unprecedented briefing with the goal of developing specific steps designed to elevate the level of collaboration in marine science and conservation between Cuba and the U.S.

Scientific research focused on the marine waters the two countries share has been one of the few areas of strong, consistent collaboration between the United States and Cuba despite the fact that the two countries have not had formal diplomatic relations over the past 50 years.

Please join us for a unique panel discussion to learn about the results of this landmark meeting and what it may mean for the future of marine science and international relations.
