Keynote speakers include: Captain William S. Wright, Sr. Vice President, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., Hon. Gordon 'Butch' Stewart, Chairman, Sandals Resorts and Air Jamaica, Dr. Jeffrey Sachs and Dr. Thomas Lovejoy, world-renowned experts in environmental economics, and Dr. Sylvia Earle, leading international expert in marine science and conservation.

Co-conveners include the Center for Environmental Leadership in Business (CELB), the Center for Applied Biodiversity Science at Conservation International (CABS), the Center for Environmental Research and Conservation (CERC), the Punta Cana Ecological Foundation and the Punta Cana Resort and Club.

"Tourism can be both a cause of environmental damage as well as a positive force for conservation," said Jamie Sweeting, Director of Travel and Leisure for CELB, a division of Conservation International.
