The Marine Conservation Society's Annual Conference has a special focus on climate change - one of the greatest

impacts on our world's oceans today.

It is now accepted that climate change is happening. This special one-day event will highlight the evidence for climate

change; researchers will outline alarming shifts in oceanic environments; you can hear about how UK marine life is being affected; and experts will describe why this

problem needs to be challenged and how you can help.

Out of all the uncertainty, we hope to bring some clear-cut messages through the course of this unique


The programme is packed with informed presenters covering other marine conservation matters, with

discussion, film, photography, and more. You'll hear about the range of activities MCS has carried out over the last year, and look forward to new challenges.

Guest Speakers on Climate Change:
Ian Totterdell (Met Office) "Global warming: what's in store?"

Steve Hawkins (Marine

Biological Association) "Responses in marine life to climate change"

Chris Reid (Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Sciences) "Plankton regime shifts and the

key role that the oceans play in climate change "

Carol Turley (Plymouth Marine Laboratory) 'Ocean Acidification - the other CO2 problem'

Michael Hay

(British Wind Energy Authority) "Marine Renewables - where we are today"

Other speakers:

Port Erin Marine Lab) "Underwater to get out of the Rain"

Plus many others for a full day's programme.
