Issue 16, Published October 2020
In the October edition we proudly feature TV presenter Paul Rose. Paul has years of experience leading exploration and making science possible in the most remote locations and here he describes his role as Expedition Leader for the National Geographic’s thrilling Pristine Seas project. Paul has used the enforced pause in expedition activity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to reflect on our relationship with nature and offers a set of values which he hopes will help society make better choices for the ocean.
We are also pleased to partner with the Marine Stewardship Council. MSC's Fisheries Assessment Manager, Matt Gummery, asks whether National Plans of Action are protecting seabirds from fisheries.
