The College of Coastal Georgia’s Department of Natural Sciences will host Coastal Science Symposium 2023 on Friday, Dec. 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Campus Center on the Brunswick campus. The symposium is an annual event that brings together students, faculty, collaborators, and community members to explore coastal and marine research, management, conservation, and more.

This year’s keynote address, “Reimagining Wildlife in Human Care”, will be delivered by Indie Lewis, who is the capacity building and training lead for White Oak Conservation in Yulee, Florida. White Oak is a state-of-the-art scientific education and conservation center focused on saving and recovering populations of rare species, building assurance populations, researching animal health, convening experts, and educating the next generation of conservation experts.

The symposium will feature the work of Coastal Georgia students, who will present posters on their research and experiential learning in biology and environmental science. Community partners will also be in attendance to provide educational exhibits and opportunities to get involved in science and conservation on the Georgia coast and beyond.

The community is invited to the symposium. It is a free event with no registration necessary.
