#SustyTalk: Exploring coral reef restoration with marine biologist Dr Tim Gordon
edie's #SustyTalk interview series continues with an exclusive discussion with Mars Petcare's marine science officer Dr Tim Gordon.
With edie readers working remotely or on furlough, this exclusive series of video interviews keeps you connected to the inspirational business leaders who are continuing to drive sustainability and champion climate action from their own homes.
#SustyTalk is all about keeping edie's loyal readers connected to sustainable business leaders across the world, whilst reminding us all that sustainability and climate action must go on through the current Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
The latest episode sees edie’s senior reporter Sarah George speaking with Mars Petcare's marine science officer Dr Tim Gordon.
Dr Gordon discusses how the company, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy, restored a major coral reef off the coast of Indonesia, and how the project will be scaled to cover 185,000 square metres by the end of 2029.
He also provides advice for businesses looking to partner to deliver credible nature conservation and restoration projects - a topic which is becoming increasingly important with the 15th biodiversity COP on the horizon and with the development of nature-based targets for businesses underway.
