Video: TED Talks series - Greg Stone: Saving the Ocean One Island at a Time Last Updated on 2015-05-27 16:57:45 17:16 minutes 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.
