Winelands: Monthly speaker evening - Dr Todd Capson

Protecting South Africa’s ocean heritage:
unprecedented threats will require bold interventions

Dr Todd Capson has twenty-five years’ combined experience in West Africa and Latin America building and managing programmes to address the impacts of climate change on the oceans, to create marine protected areas, and to build scientific capacity.

He is a Research Associate of the Paris Institute of Global Physics where his work addresses the impacts of climate change on West African oceans.

He is currently based in Cape Town, working to establish the country’s first marine UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Todd will describe his work around the world to establish marine protected areas and UNESCO World Heritage Sites; his efforts to build capacity to address the impacts of climate change on the oceans; and other conservation programmes. He will also provide insight into current related initiatives in South Africa.

Our speaker evening will be held via an interactive Zoom webinar, and all current members of Mensa South Africa are invited to participate.
