Fragile Legacy – Tedx talk about the oceans with Dr Drew Harvell

This is a new TedX talk by famed marine biologist, Dr Drew Harvell of Cornell University.  Drew is a leader in coral reef science, disease ecology, invertebrate development and evolutionary ecology and an expert on coral reef gorgonians (among other things).

Science, art and history merge seamlessly in the fragile works of Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka, master glass artisans of the 19th century.The Blaschka glass art collection of 570 exact glass replicas was made 150 years ago. This talk describes and shows early footage of the film we are making of the living representatives of the squids, octopus, jellyfish, sea slugs and other invertebrates in the collection.
