Climate Sea Change

What do we know? When did we know it? What do we do?

Eight years ago a group of internationally renowned marine scientists met and discussed the impacts of the Climate Change they were seeing in their work. This year they gather again to take stock.

These experts discuss which of their predictions have come true, tackle big questions such as ‘Can the Great Barrier Reef be saved?’ and ‘Will we still be able to catch fish for dinner?’ Hear their candid reflections on the future and what can be done about it.
