GUEST SPEAKER, Peter Shelley, Senior Counsel, Conservation Law Foundation
May 31, 7:00 pm Chenery Auditorium
Planning time on the Cape, the Coast of Maine, Block Island or at any coastal destination this summer? Join us for a special presentation on oceans and climate change and add a new element of discovery and meaning to your vacation. This discussion will focus on the importance of oceans to life on the planet, the paradox of how they are, at the same time, very big and yet hold finite resources, and it will examine how humans understand and manage our oceans through science, poetry, law, photography, diving, fishing, and in countless other ways. The talk will also consider the challenges we face in keeping our oceans healthy, including the ever-growing difficulties tied to climate change. The presentation will emphasize how great humans are at solving problems when we are focused on doing so and examine what remediation is being explored.
This will be an interactive presentation with awe-inspiring visuals and a dynamic discussion with Mr. Shelley. Don’t miss this important discussion of the impact of climate change and environmental stewardship on one of New England’s most precious resources, our oceans!
