8 June, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT

You are invited to our World Oceans Day event! This day is about celebrating our beautiful oceans and waterways, and aims to unite us to protect and conserve these precious ecosystems.

We will be joined by guest speakers for presentations on their current work in their specialist fields around Western Australia. Guest presenters include:

– Anna Faber, a PhD candidate and researcher from the University of Western Australia, sharing her research on microbes and microplastics in our oceans.

– Cristian Salinas, a PhD student from Edith Cowen University to talk about the importance of water quality in wetland ecosystems, and a live demonstration.
