Dr Joanne Preston speaks about the restoration of Oyster Reefs.


With an estimated decline of 95% since the 19th century, native oyster reefs are now one of the most threatened marine habitats in Europe. In some regions of Europe native oysters are now functionally extinct. This talk is all about how we are bringing back this forgotten ecosystem through restoration ecology, pioneering projects and collaborative networks.

Dr Joanne Preston

Dr Joanne Preston is a Marine Biologist based at the Institute of Marine Sciences, University of Portsmouth. She founded the UK/Ireland Native Oyster Network in collaboration with the Zoological Society of London to catalyse a national approach and scale of oyster habitat restoration.
