There will be time devoted to questions at the end of the lecture.

 

THE DANGEROUS CONSEQUENCES OF THE DECLINE OF CORAL REEFS

Dr Max Bodmer studied biology at Oxford University and is now a research scientist in Honduras studying what is happening to the world’s coral reefs. Coral reefs are amongst the most beautiful and diverse places on earth, but like the rainforests they are under threat due to human activities. Deforestation, over-fishing, global warming and acidification of the oceans are having a catastrophic effect on marine food chains with dangerous but unknown consequences for mankind.

There has never been a more important time to understand the impact of mankind’s destruction of the marine ecosystems. Dr Bodmer is an expert in this field and will show us the extraordinary beauty of these ecosystems, explain what is happening to them and why.

We look forward to seeing you at this fun and informative evening with the MJS.
