From Penguins to Polar Bears: Impacts of Climate Change
Sunday, May 4, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Woods Hole, MA
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The polar regions, particularly the Arctic and the Antarctic Peninsula, are warming faster than the rest of the world with dramatic declines in sea ice. Many polar species rely on the sea ice to feed and breed, and may be jeopardized by anticipated sea ice decline. Our guest speakers will share their experience in conservation decisions and implementing lawful protection for species endangered by climate change. Scientists from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution will share their stories on studying polar species in a changing world. The event is free, however reservations are required.
