  • Share:
Name: Crisis in the Pacific: KPC Showcase
Date: October 4, 2017
Time: 6:30 PM - 6:30 PM AKDT
Event Description:
Wed, Oct. 4, 6:30pm, in the McLane Commons:  Crises in the South Pacific

Peru and Alaska are connected by the Pacific Ocean and share similar issues regarding water, marine animals and fish. Dr. Carlos Yaipen-Llanos will discuss the environmental situation on South America's Pacific Coast and efforts to reverse the ocean's decline.

Dr. Yaipen-Llanos is often featured in the international press, covering the almost continual crises of dying animals, melting glaciers, ocean pollution and the devastating floods that wiped out thousands of homes and miles of Peruvian beaches last year.

Dr. Yaipen-Llanos is a marine veterinarian as well as the founder and leader of ORCA, an international volunteer program that rescues stranded marine animals. Turning the Tides, the organization sponsoring Dr. Yaipen-Llanos, is uniting students around the world and would like to connect Alaska and Peru students to work together on common issues.
