Mar 13 - Free Evening Lecture At The University Of Gibraltar

The University of Gibraltar, together with the Institute for Life and Earth Sciences, is is presenting a free evening lecture by the University’s Beacon Professor, Dr John Cortes, on April 10th at 7pm.

Beacon Professors are unique to the University of Gibraltar and the title is symbolic of their role to “spread the light of knowledge, to inspire students and illuminate their life paths.”

About the Lecture

Small Islands and their waters hold tremendous biodiversity; but their size can bring nature into conflict with Man and Development. Ensuring environmental governance and protection of wildlife in these situations are strong challenges with tremendous possibilities but varied outcomes, with the balance between economic development and environmental protection not always easy to achieve. Using examples from Gibraltar, the other UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies, and the Galapagos Islands, the lecture will explore how these challenges are being met and what lessons can be learnt that are relevant at a global scale.

About the Speaker

Dr John Cortes is Minister for Health, Environment, Energy and Climate Change, HM Government of Gibraltar. John has a BSc. (Hons) Botany and Zoology from Royal Holloway College, University of London, 1979, and a D.Phil from Magdalen College and Animal Ecology Research Group, Oxford, 1983.

In 2003 he was awarded an MBE for services to ecology and conservation. His research and publications reflect his interests in ornithology, plant and animal ecology, primatology, and conservation biology. Special interests include invasive species, reptile ecology, cliff ecology, phenology of migration, and ecology and behaviour of Barbary macaque.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
