About this Event

There are three talks happening for the Our Fragile Planet event.

11am: A modern day adventure to the end of the earth.

Join Peter Watson and Captain Simon Lucas for a talk and video series on a 2018/19 season in the deep Southern Ocean. We will be exploring our journey, the wilderness, wildlife, climate and adventure tourism in one of the last true wildernesses left on the planet, Antarctica. A fun, educational talk with plenty of times for questions at the end.

1.30pm: The Circle of Life: our amazing marine ecosystems and the importance of citizen science - A talk by Alex Herschel of the Biodiversity Partnership Group

Beneath the surface, our oceans hide a complex and fascinating marine ecosystem; a system that is constantly responding to and balancing change. When balanced, the sea with its currents, tides and underwater seascapes combine with weather patterns and lunar cycles to form a myriad of wonderful habitats and biodiversity. Tip this fragile system too far and it starts to become unstable. In recent years, the growth of citizen science has built up a database of information to understand and therefore manage our marine environment whilst also involving the public in scientific monitoring. Learn about Guernsey’s fragile marine environment and the local organisations carrying out invaluable work to protect it.

6.15pm: Mandy Barker: talking about her exhibition, Soup

Mandy Barker is an international award-winning photographer whose work involving marine plastic debris has received global recognition. Working with scientists she aims to raise awareness about plastic pollution in the world’s oceans, whilst highlighting the harmful affect on marine life and ultimately ourselves.
