Speaker Gaelin Rosenwaks
"Tales from the Open Ocean; Adventures at Sea"
In her presentation, “Tales from the Open Ocean, Adventures at Sea” Gaelin will take the audience on a journey from satellite tagging Bluefin Tuna in the Atlantic Ocean to drilling ice cores in the frozen Bering Sea, to share her passion for ocean exploration and to illuminate cutting-edge scientific research being conducted to understand the complexity of our ocean ecosystems. Driven by her academic background in marine science and conservation, Gaelin hopes to heighten people’s awareness and sense of responsibility to preserve the health of our planet through powerful images and film.

She began her career working in Antarctica researching over-wintering patterns of Southern Ocean zooplankton after which she earned her Master’s Degree researching the migratory movements of Giant Bluefin Tunas. Alarmed by the changes happening in the oceans, Gaelin founded Global Ocean Exploration, Inc. to share her passion for ocean exploration, marine conservation, and fishing through powerful imagery, words and adventure. She now participates and conducts expeditions in every ocean to alert the public not only to the challenges facing the oceans, but also to what science is doing to understand these changes.
