How are we going to restore the Black Sea

Lecture by Mariia Pavlovska

The Black Sea is a unique body of water that is virtually isolated from other marine bodies of water and connected only to the Mediterranean Sea. Now, its ecosystem is being hostage to a full-scale war. But our experience is unique in recent history. We have the opportunity to set a precedent for the full restoration of the national territory and maritime areas after the war.

● How international marine expeditions assessed the state of the Black Sea before the full-scale invasion
● What watershed-based restoration means (the case of the Danube River) and what are the necessary steps to achieve it
● How scientists currently assess the impact of hostilities on the ecosystem the stories that the places with sunken boats and ships will tell us
● About citizen science and how each of us can help scientists prepare for the restoration of the Black Sea and protected areas
