YMB Summit Home

Welcome to the home of the 2021 Young Marine Biologist Summit!

This year’s theme was…

“Ocean Predators!”

On the 27th and 28th of November we were joined by high profile, inspirational speakers from around the world at the 5th Annual Young Marine Biologist Summit. This year’s event was FREE to attend and like 2020 took place on line.

If you are a young, aspiring marine biologist, it isn’t too late to enjoy the summit! Check out the full recording of the summit live stream here > and leave comments. We will also be uploading highlights and session recordings in the near future, so watch this space!

This year’s event was organised in partnership with Save our Seas Foundation and we are incredibly grateful for their support!
