How does a visionary marine biologist convince brain researchers to help him revolutionize ocean conservation? With lots of hugs, a million blue marbles, and one very unorthodox conference.
Since childhood, I have felt the pleasure and exhilaration of spending time on our local Rhode Island beaches.
