2012 Bevan Series
The 2012 Bevan Series explores new frontiers in fisheries management and conservation (dates and topics listed below). Speakers examine a diverse array of topics including tuna fisheries, tracking large sharks to discover their secret hideaways, recreational fishing, marine extinctions, science outreach to the media, and the newest approaches to managing marine and freshwater ecosystems.
The Bevan Series examines the biological and social ramifications of our past, present, and future use of marine resources. Highly acclaimed speakers from academic, agency, and nongovernmental backgrounds tackle sustainability from disciplines as diverse as ecology, fisheries management, conservation biology, media outreach, technology, and policy.
We invite you to join us for 10 informative lectures and take your place at the leading edge of marine conservation. All lectures are free and open to the public.
