Talking circle – an opportunity to speak with Zulu fishers

Hosted by Tero Mustonen

This talking circle will be an innovative and interactive exchange considering the multiple, simultaneous drivers of change regarding traditional Zulu fishermen of the Eastern seaboard of South Africa. New species are appearing, “old” species are changing their behavior, there is a lack of rights and recognition, and marine pollution. This is all in the context of post-Apartheid South Africa, and are some of the issues that the circle will address, chaired by IPCC Lead Author and Snowchange Fisherman Tero Mustonen, from Finland.

Species on the Move

An International Conference Series

The conference brings together scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, biogeography and evolution, and relevant in contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology.


Species responses to climate change is a rapidly evolving research field, however, much of our progress is being made in independent research areas: e.g. understanding the process vs responding to the implications, terrestrial vs marine ecosystems, global meta-analyses vs in depth species-specific approaches. This interdisciplinary conference develops connections between these parallel streams, and across temporal and spatial scales.
