Tropic101x: Tropical coastal ecosystems
Do you want to develop the skills and knowledge needed to help preserve tropical coastal ecosystems? These habitats provide goods and services for hundreds of millions of people but human activities have led to their global decline.
TROPIC101x introduces you to the incredible plants and animals that create these unique ecosystems. You will explore the challenges these ecosystems are facing such as overfishing, coastal pollution, ocean warming and acidification.
Lectures are delivered by world-leading experts and you have the opportunity to become a citizen scientist and take part in virtual ecology projects.
