Our shared global fisheries provide invaluable recreation opportunities, help ensure food security, and contribite to local and global economies. However, climate change threatens to undermine the health of our fisheries and, indeed, aquatic ecosystems more broadly. Thus, there is an urgent need to communicate the risk of climate change within a fisheries context.
The Climate Ambassadors Program (CAP) is an initiative designed to train fisheries professionals in the skills necessary to more effectively communicate the science of climtae change in a fisheries and aquatic ecosystems context. Training will be in-dept, interactive, and grounded in evidence-based science communication techniques. Together, the training provided under CAP will enable Ambassadors to engage with a wide range of audiences.
