Blue Carbon, Climate & the Oceans - Sat Oct 13

Presented by Colin Campbell, Marine Campaign Coordinator for the Sierra Club of BC. Hosted by the Mayne Island Conservancy Society.

7:30 pm at the Community Centre

Carbon stored in the natural sinks of coastal oceans is secure for millennia, and the conservation and restoration of the associated ecosystems could account for up to 10% of the emissions challenge.

Dr. Colin Campbell was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia where he trained in Zoology and Palaeontology, spending the late 60's and early 70's at the University of California Berkeley, acquiring his PhD.

He spent the 90's at the Australian National University working with an international climate change and sea level research program in Australia, Papua New Guinea and China and worked on the identification of environmental change following the arrival of humans in Australia and the central Pacific.

Presently, his time is occupied with climate change outreach on behalf of the Sierra Club and climate change issues in the context of Marine Use Planning.
