Alumni News: University of Otago Magazine Article “Coastal Connections”

In the latest University of Otago Magazine, Issue 52 one of our past students – Director and Associate Professor, Anna-Marie Jackson features in an article “Coastal Connections”.  Anna-Marie left SGHS in the late 90’s. 

Extract taken from the feature article:

WHILE THERE HAS BEEN a lot of discussion at the global level about the effects of climate change and the threats of ocean warming, sea-level rise and ocean acidification, not so much is known about its local effects and what is happening in the coastal sea.

These issues will now be addressed by the new University of Otago-based national Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE), Coastal People: Southern Skies (CPSS), which sets out to examine the connections between human well-being and the health of marine ecosystems.

Directors, Associate Professors Anne-Marie Jackson (Physical Education, Sport and Exercise Sciences) and Chris Hepburn (Marine Science), say the CoRE’s vision is flourishing wellness – or mauri ora – of coastal communities.
