Cheetahs on the Run - Frans Lanting and Chris Eckstrom

Join Frans and Chris on a remarkable journey to uncover the secret life of the cheetah--the fastest animal in the world, and the most vulnerable of all the big cats. In this year's show, Frans and Chris travel from the fabled Serengeti Plains of East Africa to the remote deserts of central Iran, where Frans gained exclusive access to document the last wild cheetahs left in Asia--cats so rare that few people know they exist. This show features images and video from a brand-new assignment Frans and Chris produced for National Geographic, and includes coverage of cheetah "supermoms" raising kittens on the run--and on the edge of survival--as well as the little-known cultural history of cheetahs in Iran, which dates back thousands of years. Join us for a fascinating afternoon or evening of discoveries and insights about the shiest and most elegant of great cats. Proceeds from the presentations will benefit the Seymour Marine Discovery Center at Long Marine Lab. Presentation runs at 3 PM and again at 7 PM. Tickets on sale now! Purchase online or in person at our front admissions desk. Visit our website for details.

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
