Event description
An entertaining talk look at what marine biologists actually do, through the eyes of estuarine ecologist, Dr. Nick Pope!

About this Event

This talk takes a sideways look at a somewhat haphazard career in marine science. It includes a look at a proposed tidal power barrage in the Severn Estuary; pollution of our estuaries and coasts; the impacts of antifouling paints, radioactive waste, nano-materials and sex changes in molluscs, together with the importance and relevance of mud and the life within it! The talk is illustrated with bad photographs and terrible diagrams, and takes a cynical look at science funding and the challenges facing in a career in environmental science. Not to be missed!

The talk will be followed by our monthly meeting to which all are welcome. The Zoom link will be emailed to registered attendees 3 days before the event. For any more information, please contact looevmca@gmail.com.
