Howard E. Woodin Environmental Studies Colloquium Series
The Phoenix Islands Protected Area, in the Republic of Kiribati, is the largest and deepest UNESCO World Heritage Site on the planet. It hosts a diversity of marine ecosystems including shallow coral reefs, deep sea, and open ocean, and is an important climate laboratory because it is sensitive to El Nino / La Nina dynamics in the Central Pacific. This talk by Randi Rotjan, Research Assistant Professor at Boston University, will explore the latest integrative and interdisciplinary science in a conservation context.
September 19 at 12:30 in Hilcrest 103

Would you like to help set up an aquaponics facility in the McCardell Bicentennial Hall (MBH) Greenhouse? Send a note to Bea Kuijpers (bkuijpers at middlebury.edu), if so — she and Catherine Pollack developed a great plan for raising fish sustainably last year, but didn’t have the Institutional Review to handle live animals finished in time to actually install the tank. It’s basically ready to roll, with some student energy. Reach out to her today!
