“We need a radically new approach to ocean conservation” Alasdair Harris
In a visionary talk, he lays out a surprising solution to the problem of overfishing that could both revive marine life and rebuild local fisheries — all by taking less from the ocean. “When we design it right, marine conservation reaps dividends that go far beyond protecting nature,” he says.
Speaker Harris works in some of the world’s poorest countries, where his organization Blue Ventures seeks to demonstrate that effective marine conservation requires pragmatic, entrepreneurial and locally-led approaches to ocean protection.
