Pennicott Wilderness Journeys is pleased to be part of the 2021 Beaker Street Festival’s Tassie Science Road Trip.

Professor Gretta Pecl from the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies will be joining our 4.5 hour Wineglass Bay Cruise from Coles Bay on 14 August. She'll add some commentary on how the numbers and types of marine species we find off Tasmania's East Coast continue to change and why, and be available to chat to guests generally.  

Gretta is a marine ecologist with a passion for science engagement and communication with the public. Much of her current research is about understanding climate change impacts in marine systems, and how our marine industries and communities may best adapt to these changes. She developed and leads the National citizen science project Redmap Australia, which invites fishers and divers around our coastline to help monitor changes in our seas. Gretta is also a Lead Author for the IPCC (Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change), Director of the Centre for Marine Socioecology at UTAS, and a mum of two teenagers.
