The current moment in geological history is sometimes called the 'anthropocene', meaning that humans are the dominant force shaping our natural world. We all know that the environment is under enormous pressure, but what does 21st century conservation look like? Our speakers will show you examples of modern conservation projects, showing us that there is still hope for the natural world.

Ten Turtle Years – the past, present and future of sea turtle conservation

Sea turtles and humans don’t mix. Poaching, plastics, fishing gear and climate change are all huge problems. Over the past decade, The Turtle Project has worked with NGOs in Cabo Verde to train local communities to collect data on their turtles. This helps us to answer important questions, such as: can turtles adapt to climate change? can we identify important habitats to protect by tracking turtles and their behaviours? Our community-based approach is contributing to both conservation decisions for these endangered sea turtles, and increasing opportunities for people across the archipelago.

TALK CANCELLED What's the biggest problem in conservation?

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Unfortunately, the speaker has now become unavailable. The other 2 speakers, Leila and Emma, will both have extended talks on their work in the conservation of sea turtles.
