Shaun's TEDxChapmanU talk enlightens us all about the importance and urgency of taking care of the world's oceans. Through storytelling in his IMAX films, he combats ignorance and inspires us to do our part in taking care of the environment.

About TEDx:

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
