Learn, have fun and be inspired at Guardians of the S.E.A.A. events

In line with our on-going effort to educate and inspire the public on marine conservation, Guardians of the S.E.A.A. organises monthly events such as workshops, talks, beach cleanups and reef cleanups.

This February, we will roll out the first of four talks in our new speaker series titled Science in the S.E.A.A.. Come listen to world renowned shark expert Professor Colin Simpfendorfer as he shares with you his experience in shark research and some of his latest findings:

When: 24 Feb, 8.00pm – 9.30pm
Where: Open Ocean Gallery, S.E.A. Aquarium
What is it about:
Sharks have inhabited the oceans for more than 400 million years, but the advent of industrial fishing has seen many species decline to alarmingly low levels. To counter this threat, researchers worldwide have begun to gather information needed to understand these iconic predators so as to improve management systems. Professor Colin Simpfendorfer will describe some of the research being carried out by James Cook University (JCU) researchers who are at the forefront of global efforts to halt the decline of shark populations.

About the speaker:
Professor Colin Simpfendorfer is the Associate Dean of Research and Director of the Centre for Sustainable Tropical Fisheries and Aquaculture at JCU. With 30 years of experience in shark research, he has published extensively in the scientific literature on shark biology, ecology, fisheries and conservation. His expertise on sharks has been recognized by his appointment as the Co-Chair of the IUCN’s Shark Specialist Group.
