Sable Island Conference 2021

A Series of Virtual Presentations

We continue our bi-annual conference dedicated to Sable Island National Park Reserve and the marine environment that surrounds and maintains it. In this year of ongoing physical gathering restrictions due to a pandemic it became too difficult to hold it in-person. Instead, we organized a series of weekly presentations via ZOOM on Saturdays at 2:00pm Atlantic (Halifax) time from January 15 to March 26, 2022 to showcase Sable Island from a variety of perspectives. And we followed the example of other esteemed institutions by delivering our Sable Island Conference 2021 in a year other than as named.

The conference sessions are posted below and include a brief description of the topic and a short bio of the presenter. More sessions are being added as presenters are confirmed and provide their topic descriptions. Completed sessions will also include a link to the 15-20 minute recording of the formal presentation on our YouTube channel.

The live ZOOM sessions consist of a formal presentation of 15-20 minutes – that is recorded – and a live question and answer period of 15-30 minutes – that is not recorded. To help keep these sessions manageable, and especially to enable lively conversation after the formal presentation, they are open exclusively to our members.

We are a charitable organization and the bi-annual conference is a fund-raiser for our education programs, and specifically for our annual scholarships. We are offering these sessions for free and welcome any contributions you are able to make. Please click here to donate and receive a charitable receipt for tax purposes immediately.
