    Wild About Saltmarsh Ecology with Cai Ladd - S2 E7

    Hello and welcome back to the Wild About conservation Podcast. Join us this episode as we talk to Cai Ladd - a welsh marine biologist, a coastal scientist and a bio-geomorphologist. We get the chance to talk to Cai about his academic career so far, the dynamic environments that are Saltmarshes, and we begin to explore the world of blue carbon research. Cai is a fantastic communicator and left us feeling much more knowledgeable about these ecosystems - why they are important, how we should look after them and what processes occur within them.

    Wild About Mangroves and ACES with Robyn Shilland - S2 E5

    Wild About Mangroves and ACES with Robyn Shilland - S2 E5

    Hello and welcome back to the Wild About conservation Podcast. This week we speak to Robyn Shilland, Projects Manager for The Association for Coastal Ecosystem Services (ACES) which supports community-led blue carbon projects in East Africa. We dive into her work in marketing and trading blue carbon credits on behalf of the Mikoko Pamoja and Vanga Blue Forest projects. Robyn speaks to us about  the potential for conservation to deliver benefits not only for biodiversity but for local people and the climate, and we explore the challenges that community-led projects bring in delivering socially just environmental conservation and climate action.

    In this episode we talk about mangroves, their role in the ecosystem, the charity ACES and how it all interconnects to give a community-led sustainable approach to conservation that you may not have yet considered.
