Speaker: Danny Renton
Danny Renton, the Founder and CEO of the Scottish Charity, Seawilding will talk about their community-led efforts to restore biodiversity to Loch Craignish in Argyll and Bute. The charity aims to restore 1 million native oysters to the Loch over five years, and has started Scotland’s first seagrass restoration project. In 2021, the charity planted 1Ž4 hectare of seagrass and aims to double that in 2022, as well as rolling out these low-cost, best-practise restoration methodologies to other coastal community groups. Danny worked as a BBC Radio documentary-maker for many years before living and working in Macedonia and Albania where he ran cultural heritage projects. He has a life-long passion for the sea and marine conservation and a Masters in Climate Change and Development.
