I don’t want to lose Nemo-Tasmanian Marine Science Winter Lecture Series

oceanplanet, July 14th 2013

32 people spent their free time to bring you that cute film. The film presents a lot of the problems we face in the future of our oceans and locally in our Tasmanian marine environment. Its scary and true, if you aren’t worried you can check out some facts about our local Tasmania marine health and the cases presented in the film.

Fortunately, Tasmania cares and is trying to create a sustainable fishing industry and is taking really innovative approaches to get you involved in the health of the Tasmanian marine environment.

Coming up this Tuesday is a free community lecture with 3 speakers giving short talks on Sustainable marine aquaculture, sustainable fisheries and the use of you (the community) to gather the future’s scientific data. It is free, its local and its about your Tasmanian marine environment. Click on the image below for more info and if you know someone who would be interested share this post with them.

    This film is increadible!! It brings glaciers to life in a rather shocking way = stunning timelapse photography from fixed cameras shows the massive retreat of glaciers over 2 - 3 years. The film follows the leading man and his crew as they travel the world to deploy and retreive remote cameras. See trailer here: http://www.chasingice.com/

    Dear Alice, thank you for raising the issue. We could not agree with you more. Ocean Planet did support the event however we did not organize the balloons and have already passed on grievances about the use of the balloons and asked that they not be used in the future.

    I completely support these people showing support for Antarctic environment but handing out balloons. Really? How much do they know about marine conservation and the harmful effects of plastics. Please in the future don't use balloons and read the following links about the damage they do to the environment. http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/society-and-culture/lets-pop-the-helium-balloon-before-we-let-it-go-20111226-1pa00.html http://www.examiner.com/article/balloon-releases-are-detrimental-to-the-environment http://balloonsblow.org/impacts-on-wildlife-and-environment
