“Science and conservation in the largest and deepest UNESCO World Heritage Site on Earth: The Phoenix Islands Protected Area” by Randi Rotjan, Research Assistant Professor at Boston University.

The Phoenix Islands Protected Area, in the Republic of Kiribati, is the largest and deepest UNESCO World Heritage Site on the planet. It hosts a diversity of marine ecosystems including shallow coral reefs, deep sea, and open ocean, and is an important climate laboratory because it is sensitive to El Nino / La Nina dynamics in the Central Pacific. This talk will explore the latest integrative and interdisciplinary science in a conservation context.
