Going Viral: An Environmental Activists Story with Nathan Robinson

About

Dr. Nathan Robinson’s video of him removing a plastic drinking straw from a sea turtle’s nose went viral in 2015. He has since been developing new ways of using technology to gain insights into the secret lives of marine creatures, including capturing the first footage of a live giant squid in US waters and mounting cameras on shells of sea turtles. Here, he will talk though the stories behind these videos, why he believes they have been so successful, and his best advice for using “viral” stories to enact environmental change on a global-scale.

Our Speaker

Nathan J. Robinson is a Marine Biologist and Science Communicator. Nathan first made global headlines when a video of him removing a plastic straw from a sea turtle’s nose went viral and in doing so inspired the creation of countless anti-plastic campaigns. Seeing first-hand the incredible impact that can be achieved via effective science communication, Nathan began to focus his research on topics that allowed him to both answer important ecological questions while also providing the opportunity to capture engaging wildlife footage. Since then, Nathan has continued to make headlines including using novel cameras that allow us to see through the eyes of a sea turtle and capturing the first footage of a live giant squid in US waters.
