Huge success on webinar series!

A big thank you to everybody that has tuned-into any of our special Centenary conference webinars over the past couple of weeks, and of course to our brilliant speakers.

We had a fantastic numbers, far exceeding our expectations and far greater than if the conference had actually gone ahead as planned last year!

With no less than 13 speakers over the 4 nights; 6 of those Keynote speakers supported by local experts – many of which were members of the The Society – there was something for everyone exploring topics such as climate change, habitats, species, geology, underwater archaeology and much, much more.

We are working on uploading the 4 webinars to our new You Tube Channel and also busy obtaining answers to any questions that were unanswered during the live sessions due to time constraints – more details coming soon.

Thanks so much for making it such a memorable birthday celebration and for you interest and support.
