Join the Island Institute and Conservation Law Foundation for a special screening of the Institute’s “A Climate of Change” film series.
Across New England and the nation, fishermen and scientists are observing shifts in the ecosystem and dramatic changes on the water. The Climate of Change films examine the effects of climate change on the fishing industry, including warming waters, lack of biodiversity, and ocean acidification. This Island Institute film screening will help introduce shellfish aquaculture as an example of economic diversification for fishing communities and will be excellent opportunities for relationship building and dialogue on climate change.
CLF’s Executive Vice President, Sean Mahoney, will be part of a special Q&A panel after the films.
