Ideas & Images at Flagler College: A Living Time Machine: Cuba’s Remarkable Ocean Ecosystems
David Guggenheim, the guest speaker, is founder and president of Ocean Doctor, a non-profit conservation organization in Washington, DC. While 50 percent of the Caribbean's corals have vanished since 1970, many of Cuba's marine ecosystems remain spectacularly healthy, teeming with endangered species seldom seen elsewhere in the Caribbean. Guggenheim explores why Cuba's ecosystems remain so healthy as well as future threats to the marine ecosystem. The free event is at Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College at 7 p.m.
