James borrell is a conservation scientist and science communicator, with a particular interest in how species adapt to changing climate.
How Whales Change The Climate
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in conservation, it’s that life doesn’t always work the way you expect.
Natural processes can be counter intuitive. Sometimes, an action or event in one place can have consequences you couldn’t have imagined in another. The video below about whales is a great example of this.
James is a highly acclaimed public speaker, delivering keynotes, lectures and debates to a wide range of audiences including students, the public, conservation practioners and scientists. Rather than further polarizing already divisive conservation topics, James aims to explain the complexity and nuance of conservation. What we choose to do over the next five decades, will profoundly influence the diversity of life on eath for the next 5 million years. It’s never been a more important, or more exciting time to be a conservationist.
