Wednesday 7 July 2021, 14:00 – 15:30 BST
This lecture series will promote the world class and globally impactful research in University of Exeter’s College of Life and Environmental Sciences amongst peers, students (past, current and future), and friends to the University.
Far from being a silent world, our oceans are a rich tapestry of sound. But this soundtrack is rapidly changing at the hands of humans, with devastating consequences for marine ecosystems. But Steve believes it’s not too late and that with creative solutions, we can restore natural soundscapes and help save the many animals that depend on acoustics for their survival. Hear how you can support the change in direction and restore a natural rhythm to our oceans.
Steve Simpson is a marine biologist, fish ecologist and self-confessed ocean optimist. His work focuses on impacts of global change including climatic warming, ocean acidification and noise on fish, fisheries and marine ecosystems with his work on bioacoustics, including fish communication and soundscape mapping, was featured on Blue Planet II.
