Saturday, January 26 at 2:00 -- In this Afternoon with the Author program Sandy Macfarlane presents Swirling Currents: Controversy, Compromise, and Dynamic Coastal Change.
Swirling Currents documents the challenges of coastal resource management. Through a series of case studies, Macfarlane tackles many of today’s critical topics including marine mammal protection, overfishing, climate change, aquaculture, and nutrient over-enrichment.
Sandy Macfarlane's curiosity about all things marine, begun in youth, continues to the present. Aided by forty years of hands-on experience in resource evaluation, policy and management and decades of recreational rowing in her 14-foot Cape Dory, she learned about the biological and physical world around her. In the process, she also gained insight into the social, political, and economic landscape of coastal communities. Swirling Currents is her third book.
