David Shukman FRSGS: Deep Sea Gold Rush (DUMFRIES)


As demand grows for valuable minerals, there are plans to open a new frontier in mining: in the deep ocean. Rocks on the sea floor contain far more gold, copper, zinc and rare-earth elements than those on land. But environmentalists are appalled at the prospect of damage to fragile marine ecosystems. As Science Editor of BBC News, David has pioneered coverage of this development and explores its pros and cons.

All his work seeks to restore the vital connection between humans and nature, restoring us as keystone species, sensitive to the web of life of which we are part. Mark will bring lovingly prepared treats, tasters and tipples to share during the walk. These are both delicious and educational, and the walk is like a guided grazing. We will make a cocktail of the plants we encounter and drink it in a beautiful spot. The day will end with a cook-in for us to learn how to cook our foraged feast and digest the afternoon’s discoveries. Expect: Gentle walking on well made paths for about 3.5 hours, with some off-path exploration and some walking on rocky shore, followed by and informal al-fresco cook-in of our finds.
