Congratulations to Shari Gallop who was one of the 2020 winners of a L’Oréal-UNESCO Women in Science Fellowship.

Estuaries are are biodiversity hotspots but are at high risk under climate change, facing impacts from land and sea. This funding associated with this fellowship will help Shari to investigate the resilience of nature-based estuarine restoration to climate change, and work towards designing estuarine restoration schemes that accounts for the impacts of climate change.

This research will provide internationally relevant insights into the resilience of nature-based estuary restoration, ensuring the schemes deliver their environmental benefits such as a healthy, functioning ecosystem alongside providing important spaces where people can connect to nature for many years to come.
