I am a recent M.S. graduate from the University of Rhode Island, where I studied the impacts of anchor damage to coral reefs. I now work in southwest Florida, contributing to the management of coastal waters. I am a conservation biologist to the core, fascinated by the problems of human impacts and determined to help find solutions! I enjoy spending my free time outside and/or reading.

  1. I would like to learn more about:
    -sustainability of the fish in the ocean, and misconceptions, like “Oh, it’s only one fish I’m having for dinner, it won’t make a difference”, or “it’s farm raised so it doesn’t count”.
    -how the media plays on our fear of the unknown and creates “sea monsters and killers” of ocean creatures.
    -the role fish, and other ocean creatures, play in the survival of our planet. It isn’t just about no more fish to eat.
    -evolution of the oceans and it’s creatures. What did it/they look like millions of years ago. What do scientists predict it will look like in the future.

      Hi Chris! Thank you so much for sharing those ideas with us! We will definitely include your ideas in our list of theme options for future months. They are all very interesting topics that I’m sure our authors can tackle in future. In fact, at least one of those topics may be covered soon. Stay tuned!
