On April 7, between 2 pm and 3:30 pm (mainland Portugal time), Sciaena will organize a webinar named “The deep ocean: out of sight and under pressure” with Diva Amon.

Diva Amon is a deep sea biologist and works in the nexus of science, politics and communication. She has participated in expeditions around the world and has a lot of experience in scientific awareness and dissemination.

Dr. Amon is the director and founder of SpeSeas, an NGO dedicated to enhancing marine science, education and environmental protection in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean.
