How Healthy is the World's Ocean?

Thursday, May 9
How Healthy Is the World’s Ocean?

Ben Halpern, Director, Center for Marine Assessment and Planning, and Researcher, National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, University of California-Santa Barbara

The last decade has seen numerous reports of oceans in peril, but also many stories of successful marine conservation and management. So where does that leave us? How healthy—or unhealthy—is the world’s ocean? Come learn about a brand new way to measure ocean health, the Ocean Health Index, that allows us to answer that question for the first time in a comprehensive, comparable way, for every coastal country on the planet. Ben Halpern, the lead scientist for the Ocean Health Index project, will present results from this first assessment and dive deep into what the results mean—how countries compare to each other, what goes into the Index, and how the planet is doing. In doing so, Dr. Halpern will challenge your ideas about what it means for the ocean to be healthy, and it turn what we need to do to better manage and protect the oceans to make them healthier in the future.Register here.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
