Webinar: Tuesday February 5th - Harnessing Biological Partnerships to Improve Coastal Restoration


Register for the webinar here


The Lenfest Ocean Program will host a one-hour webinar on Tuesday, February 5 at 2:30 PM Eastern time/11:30 AM Pacific time featuring Dr. Brian Silliman, Professor of Marine Conservation Biology at Duke University. He will discuss his research to improve coastal restoration by testing whether biological partnerships between organisms can increase yields and decrease costs under a variety of environmental conditions.

Background: The Lenfest Ocean Program is a grantmaking program that funds scientific research that is useful to ocean and coastal management. Last year, Lenfest funded Dr. Silliman to investigate if restoration success could be improved at large spatial scales and under various environmental conditions by taking advantage of natural partnerships between organisms. He is now conducting experiments at four active restoration sites around the world, including North Carolina, California, The Netherlands, and China. In addition, what we learn from this project will be applicable to restoration practice in many more areas. Click here to download the fact sheet on the project.

This webinar is open to all interested, so feel free to forward this information to your networks.
