Scientists meet in Mobile to talk Climate Change

More than 450 scientists, students, officials and citizens recently met on mobile. The agenda was to discuss ways to address the environmental threats facing the region. At the Bayes and Bayeux Symposium, scientists and researchers flitted between conference rooms and thematic exhibits such as dune restoration. The focus of the conference is the protection of the bay and coastal environment. One topic took center stage.

“I think the biggest challenges for people living in the northern Gulf are those related to climate change and changing climatic conditions,” said Roberta Swan, Director of the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program. Her group hosted the meeting.

“Rising sea levels present many challenges for some of the recovery work we are doing. Recorded along the northern Gulf Coast. It’s about learning how,” she observed. “Continue to secure the wetlands and coastlines that really enhance why we live here for fresh fish, scenery and quality of life.”

The Mobile River flows outside the city’s convention center. In Alabama, almost everything that flows into drains and streams flows through here into Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Inside the building, experts met during his two days to discuss environmental issues facing the state and coast.

“One of the most exciting aspects of this symposium is the number of local staff and for-profit professionals who will be participating in this event,” said Swann.

The coast faces many environmental problems, but Swan said these people are working to improve the situation.

“Our hope is that they will be encouraged to return to their daily work and their daily education, so that it will ignite their bellies and the passions they have and their work so that we can I hope that you will be able to better understand how our work works, how ecosystems work, how they are affected by environmental change, and for future generations. What can be done to better manage environmental resources?

The symposium alternates every two years between Alabama and Mississippi. This is our 8th meeting.
