Join us for an evening with Dr. Hillgarth as she shares her knowledge on the health of our oceans. Dr. Nigella Hillgarth is executive director of Birch Aquarium at Scripps, the public exploration center of world-renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. She is a distinguished zoologist who came to the institution in 2002.
Exhibits developed and installed under Hillgarth’s direction include the award-winning "Feeling the Heat: The Climate Challenge," the ever-popular "There’s Something About Seahorses," and the new "Boundless Energy," which celebrates innovative ways we can use natural forces to power our lives.
Dr. Hillgarth’s work extends far beyond her everyday guidance of Birch Aquarium. The San Diego Soroptomists have recognized her with its Woman of Accomplishment Award, and San Diego Metropolitan Magazine named her a “Metro Mover to Watch.”
