Video: TED Talks series - Greg Stone: Saving the Ocean One Island at a TimeLast Updated on 2015-05-27 16:57:45
TED Talks series, FILMED APR 2010 • POSTED NOV 2010 • Mission Blue Voyage
Aboard Mission Blue, scientist Greg Stone tells the story of how he helped the Republic of Kiribati create an enormous protected area in the middle of the Pacific -- protecting fish, sealife and the island nation itself.
Stone wants to explain to the audience his experience of working to protect islands and their surrounding marine life from sea level rise.

In the summer of 1502, during his final American voyage, for example, Columbus commanded his fleet to the shelter of an island, now home to Haiti, as a hurricane tore through. Three of the four ships broke anchor in the walloping winds.
