Listen again: Ocean Talks 2019 podcasts

The second edition of BOAT International’s Ocean Talks took place at the prestigious Royal Geographical Society on June 12, 2019. Supported by the Ocean Family Foundation and held in partnership with Nekton, North Sails and Cookson Adventures, the event comprised a day-long programme of talks and panels with some of the world’s leading marine experts, conservationists and scientists.

The day kicked off with a sobering update on the state of the world’s oceans by Dr Mark Spalding, senior marine scientists for The Nature Conservancy. It was followed by the keynote address by yacht designer Steve Gresham and Alexander Flemming, from the Alucia2 project, on how the world’s fleet of superyachts are helping to break boundaries in science and oceanography.

Cookson Adventures’ Tom Hutton discussed how the travel specialist helped a client fund crucial killer whale research, while expedition leader Rob McCallum and scientist Dr Alan Jamieson revealed more about the ground-breaking Five Deeps expedition. Finally, Frederikke Magnussen of A Plastic Planet was joined by a panel of experts to discuss what’s next in the battle against plastics.
