In this inspiring presentation, Wallace J. Nichols explores how new technologies and large-scale research projects have resulted in an explosion of invaluable information about the health of our ocean planet and what we can do to conserve the 80 percent of biodiversity and 90 percent of global habitat that “Mother Ocean” holds. To change our destructive course, he proposes we must harness this knowledge, make it accessible to everyone and creatively communicate how the state of the oceans is central to the future of life on Earth.
