This EngTalk looks at the remarkable insight’s scientists are making into the latest vast wilderness, its living wonders and learning how the deep ocean makes life possible everywhere else on Earth.
We welcome Dr Helen Scales, marine biologist, broadcaster and author, as she makes a compelling case for preserving the deep ocean from exploitation while continuing to explore this vital part of the planet.
Among the reasons to safeguard the deep ocean from humanity’s encroaching impacts are the direct benefits to be gained, including bioinspiration for new materials and medicines from the denizens of the deep ocean.
Our EngTalks are free to attend. Register to attend our Why the deep ocean matters EngTalk, Wednesday 9 December, 1pm GMT.
