The ocean covers 70 percent of our planet and yet remains an unknown and fragile frontier. The coral triangle includes tropical marine waters of Papua New Guinea, Philippines, and Indonesia, and explodes with insane diversity. The Great Barrier Reef, the largest living reef on Earth, stretches 1800 miles. And Cuba’s reefs thrive due to political isolation. Artificial reefs are constructed where there are none. All around the world, reefs are teeming cities of biodiversity with layers of life that range from the tiniest coral polyp to apex predators that are now under threat due to global climate change and overfishing.

About Keynote Speaker David Doubilet

About Speaker David Doubilet…

Photographer David Doubilet estimates he has spent nearly half of his life in the sea since he took his first underwater photograph at the age of 12 with a Brownie Hawkeye camera sealed in a bag.

Doubilet graduated from Boston University in 1970. The following year, he shot his first story—on garden eels in the Red Sea—for National Geographic. He has been a contract photographer for the magazine since 1976 and has shot numerous articles for the publication.

Exploring the world’s waters, Doubilet has photographed in the depths of such places as the southwest Pacific, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Tasmania, Scotland, and the northwest Atlantic. His work has taken him to freshwater ecosystems such as Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Canada’s St. Lawrence River. He has photographed stingrays, sponges, and sleeping sharks in the Caribbean as well as shipwrecks in the South Pacific, the Atlantic, and at Pearl Harbor.

Considered the world’s leading underwater photographer, Doubilet has introduced a generation to the mystery and wonder of the deep. He has photographed more than 70 stories for National Geographic reporting on coral reefs, historic shipwrecks, ocean predators, and exotic marine creatures.

Doubilet has produced several books, including Light in the Sea, Water Light Time, The Kingdom of Coral: Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, andFish Face. He is also the recipient of many prestigious awards, including the Sara Prize, the Lowell Thomas Award, and the Lennart Nilsson Award in Photography.

His images are prized for both their scientific value and their aesthetic beauty. Endowed with a keen sense of humor and the ability to speak poetically about his subjects, Doubilet is an audience favorite.

Doubilet is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and the International Diving Hall of Fame. He lives in Clayton, New York.
