Ziggy Marzinelli | Restoring is not enough - future-proofing our marine ecosystems

How do we save ecosystems from environmental change? The answer lies in the invisible. In this thought-provoking talk, Dr. Ziggy Marzinelli explains how uncovering the microbial world is revolutionising our understanding of how marine ecosystems work and how to fix them into the future.

Ezequiel “Ziggy” Marzinelli is a marine scientist and lecturer at The University of Sydney, where he leads a marine ecology and conservation research group. Ziggy’s research focuses on understanding the processes that generate, maintain and impact marine ecosystems. He uses this information to develop sensible, practical solutions to environmental problems, for example, via restoration of degraded habitats.

Ziggy has done research in temperate, tropical and polar ecosystems around the world, and is passionate about teaching and communicating his research to the general public.
