The Wildlife Discovery Series is a lecture programme where guests of The Gauguin have the opportunity to learn about marine wildlife and habitats from some of the world’s most fascinating scientists, oceanographers and conservationists. Darling and Mangubhai will share their research and expertise on coral reefs and climate change, conservation challenges and opportunities in Melanesia, and WCS conservation approaches in Fiji, during The Gauguin’s 7th June 2017 Bali to Fiji voyage.
Darling is a dedicated coral reef ecologist, passionate about sustaining tropical corals in a changing climate. In her role at WCS, Darling coordinates a coral reef monitoring programme across Melanesia, Indonesia, the Caribbean and Western Indian Ocean. Her research focuses on fisheries management, community ecology and coral responses to climate change. In addition to publishing in scientific journals, Darling has contributed to popular science blogs for major media networks.
