Scientific evidence has been telling us for years that our oceans are in peril. So why have we not been able to rectify the situation?
We invite you to join Dr. Daniel Pauly, internationally-acclaimed fisheries scientist and principal investigator of the Sea Around Us, in a discussion that will bring to light the perilous state of the world’s oceans today.
Dr. Pauly will touch upon what actions would really need to be taken – by policy-makers and citizens alike – in order for the overwhelming evidence of damage to our oceans to be translated into policy and practice to save them from a dire future.Can we save our oceans from becoming so overfished and polluted that we will be telling our next generation of children, borrowing the title of Dr. Pauly’s book, to “eat your jellyfish”?
