In conjunction with an International Marxan Best Practices Workshop being held at UBC April 2-5 (www.pacmara.org for more information), the Pacific Marine Analysis and Research Association is pleased to present a public event with Daniel Pauly and Hugh Possingham, speaking about the need for smart decision-making in conservation. 

Dr Pauly and Dr Possingham will present on the current state of marine and terrestrial ecosystems and how we got here, then outline some changes and new tools needed to better manage ecosystems.  They will present a compelling vision for new approaches to science and decision-making, and for new relationships between scientists and decision-makers, to ensure more sustainable marine and terrestrial management results.

The evening will also include a question and discussion period.
