SPPH OEH Seminar - Be glad you’re not a barnacle: impacts of the 2021 heat dome on seashore life and beyond
The extreme temperatures at the end of June, 2021, triggered an unprecedented die-off of seashore life along the coast of British Columbia. All told, billions of animals – crabs, sea stars, snails, mussels, barnacles – died during the heatwave, and the ecological consequences are still unfolding. Chris will discuss the future outlook for the marine environment, and draw parallels between how people and ecosystems are vulnerable to climate change.
