The Future of the Oceans

Speaker meeting – Tuesday 14 November at 7.30pm

with Steve Simpson

Associate Professor in Marine Biology & Global Change, University of Exeter

Enthralled by David Attenborough’s ‘Blue Planet II’?

Come to this free illustrated talk from a leading marine scientist and Blue Planet II contributor

Professor Simpson’s research on the effects of climate change on fish and of human-made noise on life in the oceans has gained wide publicity recently.

Rising sea temperatures are changing the composition of our catches around the UK.  Meanwhile human noise pollution is affecting communication, reproduction and survival in many of the fish we cherish or depend upon for fisheries.

In this talk, we will be taken on an underwater adventure to celebrate life beneath the waves, examine the environmental threats to marine creatures, and explore potential solutions to improve the Future of the Oceans.

Muswell Hill Methodist Church, 28 Pages Lane, N10 1PP
