Tweet Highlights from IMCC5


A couple of months after a flurry of papers saying you could never find a fish deeper than 7km, found one at 8km. Flurry of papers saying that is physiological limit. Just found a fish at 10km #IMCC5

#IMCC5 The Jairo award for bravery in marine conservation is named after a sea turtle conservationist who was murdered by poachers. This year’s award goes to Patima Tungchayakul, who rescued thousands of people held in slavery by the fishing industry!

So fabulous to have an 'explicit' opening session about inclusion and ensuring safe and respectful spaces at conferences with @socialseas and Ruth Beach. Well done #IMCC5 for setting a great standard that other conferences can follow. #womeninSTEM @IMCC2018

Lubchenco: reminds us there is no single one solution for ocean conservation. This reminds me of a H. L. Mencken quote, "that for every complex human problem, there is a solution that is neat, simple, and wrong." #IMCC5

“Every time you create a group of people you’ve excluded a group”

Need to include #women, #migrants & other critical groups in ‘uncomfortable forums’ to capture multiple views & manage conflicting trade-offs in #marineconservation #diversity #conservation #IMCC2018 #IMCC5

Using local knowledge to inform community-led #conservation and #MPA development in #Cambodia - excellent presentation by Phallin Chea from @FaunaFloraInt, who I believe is the first Cambodian speaker at an IMCC! #IMCC5
