A Journey in Marine Conservation

“Every little bit counts, and every person counts”

Dr Celia Schunter, who comes from southern Germany, is an assistant professor at the Swire Institute of Marine Science. She became fascinated by the ocean as a child and always wanted to be a marine biologist. Today, as marine ecosystems rapidly degrade, Celia and her team are studying how different species might respond to the acidified oceans of the future and how to protect organisms that might struggle to adapt. Every piece of research fits together to help us understand how to preserve the beauty of nature and protect our oceans.
