Women In Marine Biology: A Celebratory Evening

Women In Marine Biology: A Celebratory Evening 

Join us for an evening of celebration at the Poly with a welcoming drinks reception followed by a series of talks from three inspiring women in Marine Biology: Dr Ruth Thurstan, a historical ecologist who has recently joined the University of Exeter from Australia, Dr Victoria Hobson: a specialist in marine spacial mapping who has been working closely with CWT on investigating cetacean strandings and Dr Lucy Hawkes: the queen of marine biologging specialising in tagging sharks, turtles and seabirds! 

All of these incredible women will be shedding light on their journey into science, and what they encountered along the way - all of this will be followed by pasties and networking!

Ticket price includes a drink and a pasty.
