GREG STONE, Ph.D – Ocean Renaissance

Oceanographer and author Dr. Gregory Stone has spent most of his life studying the world’s oceans. Described by CNN as “the swashbuckling Indiana Jones of the sea,” he is widely regarded as a global thought leader who finds ways for humanity and the ocean to co-exist and support each other in the modern world. In his talk, Stone will discuss his latest book, Soul of the Sea in the Age of the Algorithm, which focuses on our renewed awareness that all life on Earth is connected to the ocean and what humans must do to maintain its health in the face of pollution, overfishing, climate change, and other threats to our collective survival.

Stone cofounded the Ocean Health Index and specializes in sus-tainable fishing, aquaculture, climate adaptation, and seamount ecology. An accomplished communicator of complex science, he has given TED and Davos talks, appeared in documentaries for Discovery and National Geographic, and written hundreds of articles for such publications as Nature and National Geographic. He is also the author of four books, one a National Outdoor Book Award winner.
