Our 2nd Annual Marine Science Forum, held on 20th & 21st March 2010, was another huge success with over 120 people attending each session. 6 impressive and highly regarded speakers gave the audience an insight into their work, covering everything from deep sea canyons (up to 11km deep) to isopods, rocky shoreline ecology to the extensive migratory trails of 23 million short-tailed shearwaters.
Held at the Eden Marine High School Hall, the Forum followed a Science Discovery Day for senior marine studies students and brought around 85 people into town from interstate as well as many from the local region. It seems that the thirst for knowledge about the marine environment continues to grow, and the SCMDC Research Advisory Group are already planning next year’s event.
A great weekend of knowledge sharing, networking and relationship building – all topped with perfect early Autumn weather and set against the backdrop of some of the most beautiful coastline in the country.
