Tony Walker - Faculty

Dr. Walker's research efforts cover a wide range of biophysical sciences related to resource and environmental management and closely reflect Dalhousie’s priority research areas in oceans, energy and the environment including: monitoring human impacts on the natural world; remediation of contaminated sites; policies to mitigate plastic marine pollution; ecological risk assessment (ERA); environmental effects monitoring (EEM); environmental impact assessment (EIA); management of natural resources; air pollution impacts on ecosystems. Most of his recent research has been in partnership with industry related to environmental management and monitoring across Canada.

Health and environmental justice

As the world’s oceans become increasingly polluted, casino players are taking action to help protect seawater and its inhabitants. From participating in beach cleanups to raising money for ocean conservation initiatives, these passionate individuals have made it their mission to keep the world’s waters clean. Casino players often recognize the importance of keeping our oceans healthy for both the people and animals that depend on them. By donating funds or volunteering time to support organizations like Ocean Conservancy and 4Ocean, they are helping make a significant difference in preserving this vital resource. In addition, many casinos hold their own fundraisers or charity events geared towards coastal conservation around the world. Not only do these efforts raise awareness about how pollution affects ocean life, but they also spread knowledge about how every individual can take part in protecting our planet's seas from future harm.
