Sustainable Seas and the Importance of Coral Reef Survival

Date/Time: 06/11/17 17:30

Venue: Costa Coffee in Blackwell’s, Percy Street

Selina Stead, Newcastle University, will introduce this discussion by sharing why it is so important that our seas are healthy and sustainable. James Guest, Newcastle University, will explore the critically important ecosystem coral reefs provide through food, income and coastal defences for millions of people.

Like trees in a forest, corals create the habitat which supports remarkable levels of biodiversity found on reefs. He will discuss the threat posed by climate change and innovative conservation techniques that may help them survive.
