Iziko Museums of South Africa hosts the 6th International Jellyfish Blooms Symposium

15/11/2019
Iziko Museums of South Africa

Happening for the first time on the African continent, Iziko Museums of South Africa welcomed Jellyfish scientists from across the globe to the 6th International Jellyfish Blooms Symposium – from 4 until 6 November 2019 – at the Iziko South African Museum

The symposium prioritised the advancement of students, of women, and of persons from developing nations; and in staying true to the focus on development, the 6th International Jellyfish Blooms Symposium collaborated with Iziko Museums to bring science and society together. Through a series of lectures by international delegates open to school groups and the general public; a training workshop for emerging scientists from the African continent using Iziko Museums’ scientific collections and world class facilities; as well as a thought-provoking exhibition on Jellyfish – this edition of the symposium highlighted humankind’s impact on the natural world. 

 

With representatives from 25 countries and almost 150 presentations prepared, lecture topics included: Jellyfish mucus as a means to combat plastic pollution?; the Role of jellyfish in ecosystem structure and function: from predator-prey interactions to biogeochemical cycling; and The Human-Jellyfish Nexus, to name just a few.
