Public Lecture

Climate Change: What Do We Know? When Did We Know It? What Do We Do?

Public forum

Melbourne Museum
Tuesday 9 October, 6–7.30pm


Eight years ago, a group of internationally renowned fisheries scientists met and discussed the impacts of the Climate Change they were seeing in their work. This year they gather again to reconsider their predictions, take stock and look to the future.  These experts will tackle big questions such as ‘Can the Great Barrier Reef be saved?’ and ‘Will we still be able to catch fish for dinner?’ Hear their candid reflections on the future and what can be done to manage appropriately.
