This program will address some of the threats to our oceans and solutions being implemented in California, focusing on ocean food webs, marine sanctuaries, offshore and coastal restoration projects, and other conservation measures.
Our oceans constitute the largest ecosystem on Earth and one of the planet’s essential life support systems. They hold 97% of the Earth’s water, regulate our climate, absorb heat and carbon dioxide, feed millions of people, and support the greatest abundance of life on Earth. As our planet heavily depends on healthy oceans, it is alarming to see the impacts on them of global climate change, including warming and acidification, reef destruction, multiple pollution inputs, and over-fishing. We must act to protect our oceans and safeguard the health of future generations and the Earth itself.
Keynote Speaker: Ellie Cohen, President & CEO, Point Blue Conservation Science. Following the keynote address, we will hear from other experts on local activity to conserve our ocean and coastline. Come learn about the work being done by local groups to protect the California Pacific Ocean and how you can be part of the solution.
