The University of Gibraltar is making significant strides in marine conservation research, and their latest contribution is no exception. A team of researchers, including PhD researcher Stephen Warr and MSc Marine Science & Climate Change student Natalie Muirhead-Davies, have made noteworthy contributions to the recently published book, ‘Coastal Habitat Conservation.’
This book delves into the critical issue of conserving marine habitats and species in the Anthropocene era, providing a synthesis of conservation views, analysing the challenges and impacts of a changing marine environment, and suggesting ways to mitigate them. As a result, it will serve as an essential resource for researchers, ecologists, and conservationists worldwide.
Director of Academic Programmes & Research, Dr. Darren Fa, emphasized the significance of this book, published by international publishers Academic Press, stating that it has the potential to make an important contribution to the field of coastal habitat conservation and sustainable development. He also emphasized the interdisciplinary nature of the research, highlighting the local expertise at the University of Gibraltar and its international reach.
Overall, this latest contribution to marine conservation research is yet another testament to the University of Gibraltar’s growing reputation and global impact in the field. The book’s interdisciplinary approach and insightful analysis of the challenges facing marine conservation will undoubtedly be instrumental in shaping future research and policy decisions.
