Paul North is the founder of the educational nonprofit Meet the Ocean and host of its online podcast. As a polar diver with Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic, he tours the remote underwater landscapes of Antarctica and other sub-zero destinations to emphasize the importance, diversity, and unexpected color of the invertebrate kingdom.
Leading a team of marine educators, North produces educational tours that visit schools and children's hospitals around the world. These tours bring interactive technology and virtual reality penguin encounters that instill wonder as they educate and entertain.
Meet the Ocean works to redefine what science communication can be by providing immersive nature experiences and collecting the stories of those who have lived and worked upon the sea.
