Our oceans cover over 70% of the planet’s surface and are vital to all forms of life, including humans. From moderating our climate and weather to influencing our fresh water and soil cycles, they provide primary sustenance to over 2 billion people. With more coastline than any other country in the world, protecting our oceans is crucial to Canada’s future. As they become increasingly threatened by climate change, pollution, and overfishing, Canada has committed to becoming a global leader in marine protection by pledging to permanently safeguard 10% of its ocean by 2020, as agreed to under international targets.

Join Alexandra Cousteau and Mandy Rae Krack for a fascinating look at the work they’ve done to protect our remarkable blue planet. Alexandra Cousteau, filmmaker, Oceana Senior Advisor and granddaughter of marine explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and Mandy Rae Krack, 7-time world record free-diver, ocean advocate, and TED alumni, are two extraordinary women who will share the stage and their stories.

Delicious sustainable seafood snacks will be provided by Ocean Wise partners Chef Thompson Tran of The Wooden Boat and Chef Matt Dean Pettit of Matty’s Seafood.
