Gaelin Rosenwaks will be taking us on a journey from Antarctica to the Arctic, Palau, and points in between ending with her latest expedition diving the Blue Hole in Belize with submarines. During this talk, Gaelin will also be presenting her short film, "Coral: Glimmer of Hope" which was an official selection for the International Ocean Film Festival. This beautifully shot and inspiring film showcases scientists in Palau studying how temperature stresses coral, and how some species might contain the secret of adaptation and survival.
Gaelin Rosenwaks is a marine scientist, explorer, photographer and filmmaker. She began her career working in Antarctica researching over-wintering patterns of Southern Ocean zooplankton after which she earned her Master’s Degree researching the migratory movements of Giant Bluefin Tunas. Alarmed by the changes happening in the oceans, Gaelin founded Global Ocean Exploration, Inc. to share her passion for ocean exploration, marine conservation, and fishing through film, photography, writing and adventure. She now participates and conducts expeditions in every ocean to alert the public not only to the challenges facing the oceans, but also to what science is doing to understand these changes.
