How to best conserve our marine environment in the North East of Scotland.

About this Event

April’s Climate Café is part of DolphinFest 2021, which will run between the 7th and 11th of April!

Speakers for this café will cover how rising sea temperatures are affecting the climate and marine life, to what extent marine renewable energy structures impact on marine life and how to best conserve our marine environment in the North East of Scotland.

You will be hearing from:

Prof Beth Scott (University of Aberdeen): Impact of Offshore Wind Turbines on Marine Life

Colin McFadyen (NE Scotland Regional Coordinator, British Divers Marine Life Rescue): Marine Conservation

Julie Black (Senior Marine Ornithologist, Joint Nature Conservation Committee): Multiple Marine Pressures and Impacts on Marine Birds

Running from 7-11 April, DolphinFest is a celebration of the amazing marine wildlife around Aberdeen and the North-East coast, especially the bottlenose dolphins which are seen regularly from Torry Battery, and aims to encourage people to help protect it. It will also celebrate the end of the Dolphinwatch project which has been running in Aberdeen since 2013.
