Presented in partnership with FIU School of Environment, Arts and Society (SEAS), “Speaking Sustainably” is a lecture series offered free to the public. This month’s lecture is “When predators need saving: Changing the face of conservation for sharks.”
Lectures are held in the Visitor Center Theatre. Reception at 7:00 pm – Lecture at 7:30 pm – followed by Q&A with experts. Free and open to the public.
About the lecture:
Sharks are disappearing from our oceans at an alarming rate. Currently, one quarter of the world’s sharks, rays and skates are threatened with extinction. The lack of comprehensive and up-to-date data on species diversity, abundance and distribution hinders efforts to conserve these important and dynamic marine animals and help populations recover.
