Cost: Pay What You Wish


A marine scientist, ocean explorer, conservation policy specialist, and submarine pilot, David E. Guggenheim, Ph.D. is the founder and president of Ocean Doctor, a nonprofit organization committed to advancing the conservation of the world’s oceans. He also teaches ocean stewardship and sustainability at Johns Hopkins University; has spoken at an array of conferences, schools, and government hearings; and has appeared on numerous media outlets, including 60 Minutes, CNN, MSNBC, PBS Newshour, and NPR. Also an award-winning photographer, Guggenheim was inducted into the Explorer’s Club as a national fellow, sat as board chair of the Great Whale Conservancy, and served as vice president at The Ocean Conservancy. Though the last 60 years have witnessed the worst decline in ocean health in human history, The Remarkable Reefs of Cuba offers a surprisingly optimistic vision for marine recovery by exploring the resilience of Cuba’s coral reefs.
