We’ve seen the TV programmes, heard the news, perhaps read some of the reports, we know nature is not doing well. Species are in decline, habitats are being degraded or destroyed, and ecosystems are under enormous pressure. Sobering stuff, but to what extent is this the case for Devon’s marine environment: it’s estuaries, coastal and offshore waters? Perhaps they are doing better than we imagine, perhaps much worse.
The second of the DMF/LNP’s Summer Seminars will take stock of the state of Devon’s seas and examine just how healthy (or not) our marine environment is. While it may not be possible to have a complete marine census, having at least a sense of where we are, and how Devon’s doing, seems a useful place from which to start on the road to [blue] nature’s recovery in our region.
We are extremely fortunate to have a number institutions in our county/region undertaking world-class, pioneering marine research. For our seminar on The State of Devon’s Seas we will hear from Owen Exeter from the University of Exeter and Dr. Sian Rees from the University of Plymouth on two of the very latest approaches and assessments on the state of Devon’s marine environment.
