Olympic Coast as a Sentinel: Resilience Actions for Tribal Community Well-Being in the Face of Ocean Change
Apr 12 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Dr. Melissa Poe, Social Scientist with Washington Sea Grant, will present the third virtual co-hosted speaker series about how indigenous people have depended on Olympic Coast marine species for their livelihoods, food security and cultural practices for thousands of years. Today, these species—and the tribal communities that depend on them—are at risk from ocean changes including ocean acidification. Dr. Poe works in partnership with the Olympic Coast Treaty Tribes to better understand the risks of ocean change to tribal community well-being.
