Biography

Greg Stone, Executive Vice President of Conservation International, is one of the world's leading authorities on marine conservation policy and ocean health issues. A lifelong scientific explorer and prolific diver, with more than 8,000 dives to date in every sea on Earth, Greg has lived underwater for 30 days in a habitat and has dived to 18,000 feet in submersibles. He is currently vice chair of the World Economic Forum's Global Council on Ocean Governance and has received numerous awards including the US Navy and National Science Foundation Antarctic Service Medal. Dr. Stone has given a TED talk and appeared in Discovery Channel and National Geographic documentaries.
Born in Boston, Greg is an ocean scientist who did early pioneering research in Antarctica on marine mammals and later ice ecology where he mastered the art of diving into icebergs. He was awarded the National Science Foundation/U.S. Navy Antarctic Service medal for research in the Antarctic and his book "Ice Island" was awarded the 2003 National Outdoor Book Award for Nature and the Environment.

Since 2000, Greg has led the effort to create the world's largest marine protected area around the Phoenix Islands in Kiribati using, for the first time, market-based mechanisms to conserve ocean biodiversity, which encourage economic opportunity for local communities. For this accomplishment he was named one of National Geographic Society's Heroes of 2007 and is considered an authority on these innovative marine conservation models.

Greg has a passion for marine technology and for communicating his work to the broader public. He was senior editor of the Marine Technology Society Journal, is a world authority on New Zealand's Hector's dolphin - one of the world's most endangered, is an undersea technology and exploration specialist using deep-sea submersibles, has produced an award-winning series of marine conservation films, and has lectured throughout the world. Greg has also written prolifically for science and popular publications including Nature and National Geographic Magazine.

He is a National Fellow of the Explorers Club, a recipient of the Pew Fellowship for Marine Conservation, an honorary associate professor at the Leigh Marine Laboratory at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and was named one of the five "Bostonians of the Year" by the Boston Globe in 2008.

His sixth story in National Geographic was published in September, 2012 about seamounts. His most recent book, Underwater Eden, was released in December, 2012 by University of Chicago Press.​​​​​
