At its 2022 annual meeting, the Muskoka Conservancy will welcome keynote speaker Sapna Sharma.
“Sapna will help us understand how climate is changing and highlight the ecological, cultural, and public health ramifications of losing lake ice,” said Scott Young of the Conservancy.
Sapna Sharma is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biology and York Research Chair in Global Change Biology.
She studies how lakes worldwide respond to climate change, including rapid ice loss, warming water temperatures, degrading water quality, and changing fish distributions. She is a dedicated science communicator, generating millions of media impressions by clearly conveying complex research and as founder of SEEDS, an outreach program for refugees.
Her keynote presentation is titled: “On thin ice: are lakes feeling the heat?”
