Jlb Smith LectureGuest speaker at the annual JLB Smith lecture, Dr Kerry Sink, Marine Program Manager at South African National Biodiversity Institute, (SANBI), based in Kirstenbosch Gardens with Dr Angus Paterson, Managing Director of SAIAB and Dr Tony Ribbink, CEO and Founding Trustee of SST.

Dr Tony Ribbink, who currently leads SST, inaugurated and led the African Coelacanth Ecosystem Programme (ACEP). With the development of ACEP, the coelacanth rapidly became an icon for marine research, education and socio-economic development of people who depend on the sea throughout the Western Indian Ocean. From 2003 to 2006, Kerry joined ACEP as a marine ecologist. 

Dr Sink's lecture was one of the highlights of the 75th Coelacanth celebrations held this year.

“With every breath we take, every drop of water we drink, we’re connected to the ocean. It is our life support system, giving us more than half of the oxygen we breathe, regulating climate, and providing valuable resources.”
