It is a pleasure to be connected to Marine Conservation Network. Kimberly first reached out to The Marine Diaries on Facebook, and wanted to collaborate. I was excited to be asked to do a video interview and it was actually one of the first video interviews I had done. Since then I have been featured in webinars (including one with MCN), conferences, live discussions on social media, and spoken to schools and at in-person events. The first chat with MCN definitely helped me on this journey and I can’t thank Kimberly enough. Her work is so important and vital for our oceans.

Inspiring Our Youth to Save Our Waters

Join in the effort to save ocean ecosystems in peril. The Marine Conservation Network is building a movement for change through outreach and education, marine animal rescue efforts, and ocean monitoring. The Marine Conservation Network is bridging scientific knowledge and public perception. 

Their rigorous Youth Ambassador program is inspiring the next generation of marine scientists around the world, helping them learn, get their diving licenses, and earn scholarships for school.The Conservation Network needs $500,000 and donations of scuba equipment, educational materials, and vehicles to continue their work and get the message out that we must find a better way before our ocean ecosystems and the communities that rely on them are lost.
