Etienne Rastoin-Laplane - What's fishy about the Galapagos?


  Last updated May 17, 2019 at 4:19 pm


Etienne Rastoin-Laplane from Curtin University took FameLab Australia under the oceans. There he explored whether a place where no fishing is allowed is actually working for the environment.

The Galapagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean are known to house some of the most beautiful marine environments in the world. However, through underwater video footage, Etienne Rastoin-Laplane is providing valuable insights into how tourism and fishing is impacting the Galapagos Marine Reserve.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
