Allan Sefton Memorial Lecture

We are pleased to invite you to the 2019 Allan Sefton Memorial Lecture on Friday 16th August 2019.

The late Allan Sefton was well known to residents of the Illawarra and further afield for his work as a naturalist and conservator of the local environment. In recognition of his contributions to environmental science in the Illawarra region, the Allan Sefton Memorial Lecture was established in 1993 and is a public occasion where a distinguished Australian scientist speaks on a topic of wide environmental interest.

The guest speaker for this year will be Gretta Pecl, Director of the Centre for Marine Socioecology at the University of Tasmania, who will deliver the lecture titled “What does climate change mean for Australia’s coasts and oceans?” The lecture will discuss some of the climate-driven changes occurring in our oceans, including locally. She will finish with a citizen science example of how Australians – including you – can become involved in marine research and help us better understand the implications of climate change in our local seas.

Date: 16th August 2019
Time: 5:30pm
Location: Building 43.G01, University of Wollongong

Light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the lecture.
