When I’m Chosen for the Best Job in the World, I Will (1)

February 18, 2009

green-hatchling-1-mark-ha_0011When I’m chosen for the Best Job in the World as caretaker of the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef, I will enthusiastically attend nearby academic conferences and symposia and interview researchers and scientists and live blog about the most current research to make it accessible as blog and vlog posts to a general audience of interested PLANET PRESERVERS!

At these events,  I’d meet with and videotape interviews with scientists and activists working to help us understand and take better care of the world around us.

According to The International Turtle Socety, the International Sea Turtle Society it convenes an annual symposium to bring people together to promote the exchange of information that advances the global knowledge of sea turtle biology and conservation.

The 29th Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology & Conservation will be held on 17-19 February 2009 in Brisbane, Australia. This will be the first time the symposium has been held in Australia, and indeed the southern hemisphere. Excitement is in the air.

Creating – Community – Collaboration
The symposium will explore themes such as building communication and networking at local, regional, and global scales. It aims to create linkages between communities and to connect policy-makers at all levels with the latest information coming out of sea turtle research and conservation programs.

Additionally, a number of associated meetings are held in the days preceeding the main symposium. Many of these are regionally focused.

The symposium is of interest to delegates from many professions and backgrounds (who should attend?). Attendees at past symposia share stories of their experiences here

Koala challenge

At the 2008 symposium in Mexico we gave out some rather sweet clip on “Brisbane” koalas  – launching The Koala Challenge. Koalas went forth to help out with sea turtle work around the world… they’ve been REALLY busy click here to visit the photo page

Of course the sea turtle scientists will eb gone by the time I get there but there will be other exciting scientific info to share from July-December!

EXCITING NEWS!! I uploaded my video to Island Reef at 4am this morning…and it is being precessed as we speak! Soon I will offer up the link to go see the video on that site. In the meantime, it will soon be on my YouTube channel! Watch here for more info!
