Entertaining, educational and inspiring presentations for your event, club or society night. Please email me with an outline of your requirements to enquire about or book a presentation. Examples of talks available include;
‘Leopards on ice – Antarctic diving and marine life’
‘Poles apart’. The Arctic and Antarctic, the greatest marine wildernesses left on earth, how they are rather different, why there are no penguins north and no polar bears south, and how climate change has been part of their lives for millenia.
‘Real giant alien monsters’. The reality behind the giant squid and octopus and colossal squid legends, how big they really get, the incredible truth of the lives and ecology of cephalopods. When and where to find the handful of species of giant predatory cephalopods.
‘Is the sky falling – Climate change in context’. Concisely, digestibly and impartially, the science behind climate change in scales from tens of millions of years to decades, with an emphasis on polar and marine environments.
‘Antarctic primer – The seas’ greatest feeding grounds’. An overview of the Antarctic Peninsula and Scotia Sea marine world. Wildlife and scenery, how climate change is impacting the polar regions and the latest understanding of whales' role in the krill ecosystem and climate change.
‘When and where – The world’s spectacular marine events’. This talk has come out of years of detective work – trying to understand why the most spectacular marine animals appear when and where they do. From manta rays to leatherback turtles to dolphins, their prey and energy budgets, you can pull together a global ‘big picture’ of seasonal patterns. When and where to be to capture the most spectacular events in the marine world.
