meeting marine needs

Earthwatch Europe is hosting another set of public lectures at London tonight:

Meeting Marine Needs
Thursday 15 October 2009, 7pm to 8.30pm, The Royal Geographical Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR


Dennis Sammy, from the organisation Nature Seekers, will talk about "Trinidad's Leatherback Sea Turtles", which are at risk from poaching and accidental capture in fishing nets.

Nienke van Geel, from Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust, will present the project "Whales and Dolphins of the Hebrides", a long-term survey of these mammals in the seas off Scotland, which is crucial to establish how they are affected by human activities and climate change.

I've heard both talks in rehearsal stage and can promise an interesting evening. As always, you can sign up to take part in these projects as a volunteer helper.
