Community Outreach Speaker – Pakenham

October 12 @ 7:30 pm

Wednesday, October 12, 2022 | 7:30 p.m. | St. Andrew’s United Church is hosting Community Outreach Speaker Series.

The first talk is entitled: The Wondrousness of Coral Reefs …and why we should keep them with us.

We are honoured and fortunate to have Peter Sale as our first speaker in the re-established series. Peter is Distinguished University Professor (Emeritus) at University of Windsor. He is a marine ecologist with over 40 years of experience in tropical coastal ecosystems, particularly coral reefs. He is a senior advisor to the director of the United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH).

Peter’s talk is based on a lifetime of experience on coral reefs. His talk will help us understand the reefs and their role in alerting us to the global environmental crisis and its impact on ecological systems.

You can learn more about Peter and read his blog at: https://www.petersalebooks.com/
