Just like the plankton you all matter a lot. Tiny change makers called plankton are diverse microscopic organisms that influence Earth's biodiversity and climate along with human health and food supply in huge ways.
Dr. BridgetSeegers is a scientist at NASA's Ocean Ecology Lab at Goddard Space Flight Center and uses satellites to study ocean and freshwater quality and plankton communities Her talk highlights how tiny, microscopic plankton are global players. Beautiful imagery throughout the talk demonstrates NASA's commitment to monitoring and studying plankton and their importance. Dr. Seegers reminds that we
too are global influencers that change the planet with the collective actions. She emphasizes the optimism in acknowledging we are global changing organisms, because that means the actions can be the solutions. We should feel empowered to embrace that knowledge and act! Dr.Bridget Seegers studies the microscopic ocean life using NASA satellites. She tracks Cynobacteria that have massive impact on human health and economies and draws parallels between their size and impact and the human impact on climate. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx
