Rebecca Jarvis and Tim Young on marine science research
Our oceans are important for our health, wealth, social life and sense of identity in Aotearoa New Zealand. They are also under serious threat from a range of factors including pollution, overfishing and ocean warming. AUT researchers Dr Rebecca Jarvis and Dr Tim Young believe there’s a lack of direction in our policy and research approaches to safeguarding our marine environment. They have recently conducted a ‘horizon scan’: a survey of Aotearoa’s marine science community, to identify key areas where more research is needed. They talk with The Policy Observatory’s Keri Mills about the results.
