Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to the latest edition of SIMS News 

It's brimming with stories of leadership
 from those emerging and those established
from those leading innovation and
from others leading our young
 
A 'Frank'  Conversation

We were honoured to recently interview an icon of marine science, and SIMS' founding chair, Professor Frank Talbot AM.  Frank continues to contribute to the important conversation of marine conservation and for this year's Earth Day we wanted to share just a 'snippet' of his wisdom on the 2020 theme of Climate Action.
Congratulations to Dr Katherine Dafforn winner of the AMSA award for Emerging Leader in Marine Science

SIMS extends a very warm congratulations to Dr Katherine Dafforn, from Macquarie University and SIMS, on her recent award. Katherine has been brilliant in leading the way with both the Sydney Harbour Research Program and the Living Seawalls project, successfully partnering with organisations to translate her science into real world solutions.

Buying precious time for longer term climate change mitigation
 

As the world grapples with COVID-19, the Great Barrier Reef is facing a crisis of its own – its third mass bleaching in five years. Days before virus restrictions were imposed, a research team led by the Sydney Institute of Marine Science and Southern Cross University successfully trialled world-first ‘cloud brightening’ technology off the Townsville coast to protect our valuable reef systems from future bleaching events.

MARINE CLOUD BRIGHTENING - A COMPELLING STORY
Because we can't leave all the learning to the kids!

Education is one of our core activities and so we're creating wonderful online excursions for all those students learning from home.  In the process we learnt that 'grown ups' also love the material, so we've included just a snippet of our Biodiversity lesson for your enjoyment.
