Green Engineering Lecture

Habitat loss and degradation is a major factor in the loss of global biodiversity and ecosystem function.   This occurs both through the encroachment of artificial structures into natural systems, and through the loss of species such as corals, kelp and seagrasses which are the biological foundation of coastal ecosystems.

Green engineering, and habitat restoration, are attempts to actively redress this loss of marine ecosystems and their function. This fascinating topic was explored at our sold out public lecture in May 2016. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the evening lead by by scientists from SIMS and UNSW, Professor Peter Steinberg, Dr. Katherine Dafforn and Dr Ziggy Marzinelli.
