FSC Millport is delighted to announce that the 4th Millport Marine Symposium will this year be held on a virtual platform, which gives us the opportunity to grow our audience and have an exciting range of speakers!

The 3rd marine symposium, held in 2019, was a fantastic success that celebrated the work of those working to understand more about our incredible seas and those fighting to protect it. Following on from a difficult year, we hope that the 2021 symposium will bring together a fantastic array of speakers, encourage inspiring information exchange between professionals, students, artists and members of the public.

This year, 2021 marks the start of the United Nations decade of ecosystem restoration. Information exchange has a crucial role in conservation and so we hope that the symposium will educate, inspire and empower all of those who attend!

Please note: If you sign up to the event you will receive an email including the zoom link the day before the event.
