About the Speaker: Ken Anthony is an ecologist with a passion for coral
reefs. Ken started his career as an engineer, but quit when he first donned
a dive mask in Hawaii in 1986. He now calls the Great Barrier Reef home.
Ken’s call in life is to understand how we can sustain coral reefs in the
face of climate change, ocean acidification and pressures from pollution
and overfishing. Using tools from decision science and business strategy,
Ken works with reef conservationists, environmental managers and policy
makers to find solutions that work. Such solutions are actions that protect
coral reef biodiversity while maintaining ecosystem services that support
economies, industries and the livelihoods of millions of people.
