 Ocean Legacy: Inspiring Marine Conservation in the Ross Sea, Antartica and Beyond.

John B. Weller, an internationally acclaimed photographer, filmmaker and author, invites you to journey above and below the ice in Antarctica. He will explain how his efforts to protect the Ross Sea, Antarctica inspired a global coalition of organizations, scientists, diplomats and more than a million people, and helped entrain world leaders from the White House to the Kremlin. Weller’s photographs of the Ross Sea became the face of Antarctic conservation efforts worldwide. Twelve years of work came to fruition in 2016 when diplomats from 24 countries and the EU adopted the Ross Sea Marine Protected Area – the first large-scale international marine protected area and the largest MPA in the world.
