The oceans across the world face an exceptional threat to the well-being of their inhabitants. Human intrusion (Everything from overfishing to blowing up coral reefs) has been disastrous for aquatic life everywhere, and this includes those marine habitats and marine organisms that people rely upon for their livelihoods. What is stopping humanity from protecting the seas from such threats? What can we do about destruction of the marine life that we ourselves need? Prof. Charles Sheppard of the University of Warwick, OBE and chairman of the Chagos Conservation Trust, will answer these questions and explore what gets in the way of conservation efforts around the globe.

Like all Darwin Society talks, this talk is free for all, and refreshments will be provided.
