Philanthropy, research and community are finding solutions for climate change’s effects locally and globally within Western Australia’s iconic coastal ecosystems.

Marine Park zonings in Western Australia include the Great Southern Reef, Ningaloo and Shark Bay. These iconic coastal environments are home to kelp forests, seagrass meadows, and tropical coral reef: vibrant and unique ecosystems that are all under threat from ocean warming.

With enormous blue carbon risk and potential, these bio-diversity hotspots are ground zero in the war on climate change. Philanthropically supported research at UWA’s Oceans Institute into these marine ecosystems and their conservation is providing innovative solutions for protecting their habitats.

In this webinar, hosted by Oceans Institute Director, Associate Professor Julian Partridge, four leading UWA marine scientists will discuss how their work is making a difference.

Date: Thursday 8 July 2021
Time: 4.30pm - 5.30pm
