Speakers’ Bureau: Exxon Valdez
vs. Bligh Reef

May 26 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

FREE VIRTUAL LECTURE 
Presented by Dan Wood, docent at The Mariners’ Museum

Advance registration is required.

Join us online with Dan Wood, a docent at The Mariners’ Museum and Park, when he shares the story of the second largest oil spill in US waters more than 30 years ago and how that led to worldwide changes to environmental laws and practices. Viewers are welcome to send Dan comments or questions, which she will answer following the presentation.

About the Presentation:
This is the story of how an accident in which no ships sank and no people died became one of the most iconic maritime disasters of all time. Ultimately it cost the Exxon Corporation over 3.5 billion dollars, and generated a world-wide tidal wave of new and changed laws, practices, awareness, and attitudes regarding the production and movement of petroleum products in the maritime environment.
