How to Scale Solutions for Ocean Health? Make them Profitable.
In today's capital-driven society, investing money in ocean tech entrepreneurs is the way to create truly scaleable change, says Daniela Fernandez, Founder and CEO of the Sustainable Ocean Alliance.
Most of us know the Arctic exists, but how many have had the chance to see it for ourselves? In our new series Frozen Islands, Arctic Seas, conservation biologist Joshua Powell gives us a glimpse of the remote Russian High Arctic and discusses issues vital to biodiversity in the region. This week, he talks about the threat of plastic waste, which seabirds often mistake for bits of fish. New episodes every Wednesday - subscribe now so you don’t miss out!

Peter Kohler, founder of The Plastic Tide project, and Dr. Stefan Leutenegger, Lecturer in Robotics at Imperial College London, discuss how the ocean is under siege from an ever-increasing tide of waste, and how technology like machine learning and drones can help us fix the issue.
Threatening not only a vital economic resource worth an estimated $5 trillion a year but also humanity’s very own life support. The Plastic Tide initiative was started almost two years ago, with the aim of quantifying the problem using drone imagery of UK beaches and beyond: raised awareness and precise data will hopefully drive solutions at societal, political, and technological levels.
They have collected a huge database of drone imagery around UK beaches last year, and a prototype algorithm developed already combines a deep-learning-based plastic detection scheme in the images with geo-referenced mapping. The speakers will show early results and present related research in the space of localization, mapping, and drone flight; and furthermore, sketch the way forward to limit the plastic tide swamping our oceans.

Plastics are durable, light and versatile. However, they take up to 400 years to decompose. This will affect people’s lives for the next 16 generations.
Our excessive use of plastics is impacting ocean health and biodiversity. By 2050, there could be more plastics in the ocean than fish by weight.

Dr. Peter Graf, Chief Sustainability Officer, SAP sat down for an interview by James Epstein-Reeves of 3BL Media at the 2011 Ceres Conference held May 11th and 12th 2011 in Oakland, CA. He talks about what it means when he says SAP is a company with sustainability as its purpose.
Nate Liebenberg, the co-founder of idiveblue.com, is passionate about bringing awareness to the problems we have created with throwaway plastics. They harm so many ocean species. They pollute these precious waters. And ultimately they harm us. Join us for a deep blue discussion about our oceans and what we can do to help.
Sir David Attenborough has an update from Blue Planet II about our plastic consumption.
Sir David Frederick Attenborough; born 8 May 1926)is an English broadcaster and natural historian. He is best known for writing and presenting, in conjunction with the BBC Natural History Unit, the nine natural history documentary series forming the Life collection that together constitute a comprehensive survey of animal and plant life on Earth.
