Cassandra Brooks, Stanford University, Legacy: How the international community adopted the world's largest marine protected area in the Ross Sea, Antarctica

I’ve worked in marine science and public outreach for more than fifteen years. My writing and research focuses on marine resource management worldwide, from local New England Rivers to the remote reaches of Antarctica.  I've just completed a PhD with the  Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources at Stanford University studying international ocean policy with a focus on the process of marine protection in the Antarctic.   website

John WellerJohn Weller is a critically acclaimed photographer, writer and filmmaker based in Boulder, Colorado.  Nature photography has been his passion since childhood, and after graduating from Stanford University with a degree in Economics, John began pursuing media full time. He spent two years in California working for photographer William Neill and then moved home to Colorado, where he fell in love with Great Sand Dunes National Park. For one week of every month over more than three years, he walked with a 120-pound pack deep into the extraordinary landscape. With each trip, he further understood interconnections within the ecosystem, including his own. His goal solidified to communicate the value of pristine places, reminding people we are part of the same living system. website
