NEMO Talk: Coastlines, community, and climate activism: lessons from the ocean w/ Fiona Beaty

June 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Fiona Beaty’s talk will provide a whirlwind tour of some of the Sunshine Coast’s charismatic coastal species, from snails to eelgrass, and inspire audience members to connect with the sea as a form of climate and conservation activism.

Fiona is a settler marine ecologist, climate and conservation activist, and community leader. She is passionate about protecting people and nature from climate change using approaches grounded in collaboration, science, and creativity. She holds a doctorate in Zoology from the University of British Columbia, works as the Science Coordinator for the Indigenous-led MPA Network initiative in the Great Bear Sea, and advises myriad non-profit marine conservation initiatives in Átl’ka7tsem/Howe Sound and the Salish Sea. Fiona lives in Gibsons/Ch’kw’elhp and when not supporting coastal marine stewardship, can be found adventuring outdoors.
