PLETT Marine Science Symposium

Friday 21 - Sunday 23 June 2024

Welcome to the vibrant coastal town of Plettenberg Bay for the annual Plett Marine Science Symposium. As we gather alongside the  Indian Ocean, we embark on a journey of exploration and collaboration, delving into the depths of marine science to unravel the mysteries of our oceans.

Plettenberg Bay, with its rich marine biodiversity and pristine shores, serves as the perfect setting for this symposium—a convergence of minds dedicated to advancing our understanding of the complex ecosystems that lie beneath the surface. Our symposium aims to foster dialogue, exchange knowledge, and inspire innovative solutions to the pressing challenges facing our oceans today.

Throughout this symposium, we will engage in a diverse array of topics, from marine biology and ecology to oceanography, climate change, and conservation. Our speakers bring a wealth of expertise and groundbreaking research to the forefront, providing us with invaluable insights into the intricate web of life that exists within and in proximity to our oceans.

As we navigate the currents of discovery, let us not only acknowledge the significance of our oceans in sustaining life on Earth but also recognize the critical role each one of us plays in preserving these vital ecosystems. The symposium serves not only as a platform for the exchange of knowledge but also as a catalyst for collaborative efforts to address the challenges of marine conservation and sustainability.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants, sponsors, and supporters who have made this symposium possible. May our time together in Plettenberg Bay be filled with inspiration, collaboration, and a renewed commitment to safeguarding the wonders that lie beneath the waves. Welcome to the Plett Marine Science Symposium—an opportunity to dive deep into the ocean of knowledge and emerge with a greater understanding of our planet's most precious resource.
