Speaker: Rhoda Ballinger

This lecture is part of the free lecture series; 'BRITAIN’S COASTS TODAY – THEIR DIVERSITY AND CHALLENGES'.
BIRKBECK COLLEGE, ECOLOGY AND CONSERVATION STUDIES SOCIETY and LINNEAN SOCIETY OF LONDON
The coast is our heritage. Maintaining our docklands is vital for an island nation.Recreational sailing from our many harbours is a popular pastime and the number of marinas has increased. Estuaries, where land meets sea, are valuable ecosystems with unique salt marsh plants and bird life.Sand dunes, traditionally enjoyed by holiday makers, are also natural sea defences, but are being exploited by commercialisation, mainly through golf course development.All this against a background of sea-level rise with cliff erosion, sea walls and barriers needed to defend our communities.
This event will be held at the Linnean Society of London. The event is free but space may be at a premium, register now to reseve your place.
This lecture will be followed by a wine reception in the Linnean Society Library.
