The Community Relations Committee Speaker Series
Mark J. Spalding,
President of The Ocean Foundation
Thursday, April 19, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
At the Village Hall
It is time to Think Big about the Ocean
For this evening, we will discuss the state of the world’s one interconnected global ocean. From the massive disruption of climate change and ocean acidification, to the tiny micro-plastic that is delivering toxins, as well as virus and bacteria to marine life. From the challenges, we will also look at the other side of the coin and share the opportunities. There are reasons for hope, and we can restore the ocean to full health (including a short overview of The Ocean Foundation’s work).
