Track the Expedition

The Ocean Doctor’s “50 Years – 50 States – 50 Speeches Expedition” is a journey of outreach, education, and discovery announced by Dr. David E. Guggenheim on his 50th birthday to bring at no charge speeches and multimedia education programs about the oceans to schools in all 50 U.S. states and 5 inhabited U.S. territories. By its culmination, the expedition will reach more than 100 schools and tens of thousands of students, with whom the “Ocean Doctor” is sharing firsthand accounts and important lessons about the oceans and their conservation. The expedition is also promoting renewed interest in science and science careers among the students visited. Finally, the expedition is collecting thousands of messages from the students to be delivered to leaders in Washington, DC at the conclusion of the journey.? Learn more…
