Life in the cold: Celebrating a decade of collaborative marine research in Greenland

8 Jun 2021 18:00 - 19:30

It has been 10 years since researchers at the Institute of Zoology first began conducting marine research in the cold waters of Greenland. In collaboration with our partners at the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources, we have taken thousands of pictures and videos of the seabed spanning 2,000 km of coastline down to depths of more than 1,500m. We have provided valuable information to the Greenland fishing industry about the impact of trawling on the seabed, which has led to the protection of vulnerable habitats. This event will showcase the work that our team at ZSL, and our partners, have conducted in the last decade, documenting and protecting vulnerable marine habitats, and making detailed maps of the seabed. Join us to discover the wonders and variety of the seabed life around Greenland.
