LifeWatchGreece at WCMB

From 11 to 16 May 2018, LifeWatchGreece was in Montréal, Canada, to join the 4th World Conference on Marine Biodiversity held in the Palais des Congrès de Montréal.

The WCMB has become a major focal assembly for sharing research outcomes, management and policy issues, and for discussions of the role of biodiversity and biodiversity conservation in sustaining ocean ecosystems. The 4th WCMB theme – Connecting with the living ocean – is underlining the need to replace our current exploitation relationship with the ocean’s living resources, with a sustainable connection based on scientific knowledge.

Representatives of LifeWatchGreece also attended the Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON)  Workshop, on Tuesday 17 May 2018 at the McGill University.
