Australia is an island nation, surrounded by some of the most biologically and ecologically diverse marine environments in the world. Our economic and social survival is inexplicably linked to the health of the seas that surround us. From rubbish to run off, human impact is having an effect on the long term protection and management of these irreplaceable environments and the resources they provide.

For one night only, the Australian National Maritime Museum offers a front seat to current scientific research and observations on what is actually happening out there in the big blue, what we can expect for the future, and what you can do about it.

This talk is part of the museum’s National Science Week and Sydney Science Festival program and is made possible thanks to the Department of Industry, Innovation & Science.
