The world around us is constantly changing, from man-made issues to natural disasters to diseases. The speakers will discuss various ways society is attempting to respond. By supporting nature, animals, and other people, we talk about ways to get involved and society’s role in climate change.

Life's a beach: stranded whales and humans

40% of the human population – more than three billion people – now live on the coast, putting considerable environmental pressure on these areas. Such pressure is also reflected on coastal regulations which require remains of stranded whale and dolphin carcasses to be quickly disposed of to avoid tourists and citizens’ malcontent. However, in doing so, humans are inadvertently undermining those environmental and societal benefits that we could gain from whale strandings. In this talk, learn about the past, present and future ecosystem services associated with stranded whales.
