As reported on Coral-list July 13, 2011:
I’ve been a part of this listserv for years and know you’d want to learn about a massive environmental journalism conference coming to Miami Oct. 19-23 that I will be co-chairing. It’s the annual gathering of the Society of Environmental Journalists featuring more than 1,000 attendees including hundreds of top working reporters from throughout the hemisphere and Europe who specialize in environmental and science issues, along with scientists, policymakers, opinion leaders, NGOs, funders and more. In essence, some of the biggest names in news, science, and government. Early registration suggests it might be the largest such gathering ever held, anywhere. Reefs and other ocean issues will be front and center including the absolute very latest info on reef protection, adaptation, acidification, sharks, marine spatial planning, remote sensing, climate science, overfishing, sea level rise, and more – plus a dive tour onto a reef in the Sanctuary and Aquarius.
Frankly, there may never be a better networking opportunity. And we are planning synergies with concurrent meetings of the US Coral Reef Task Force, Nat’l Association of Hispanic Journalists, Center for Strategic and Int’l Studies, and Pew Environment Group. Go to www.sej.org to register and get a discount rate at the InterContinental while they last. You are all encouraged to re-post!
