Running for Marine Rangers

To save our oceans we need to work together! Marine rangers are on the frontline of this effort - not only patrolling marine protected areas to keep them safe, but also monitoring their ecosystems, working with their communities, teaching, and inspiring.

My story

As a passionate marine conservationist, I have dedicated my life to conserving our oceans. In my current role as Chief Scientist for Mission Blue, I am working to integrate science throughout a network of almost 160 Hope Spots in our ocean around the world, as part of a movement led by the legendary Dr Sylvia Earle. Local marine rangers are critical to the success of this work, and empowering them to be effective custodians of their ocean is essential to save and restore our ocean.

Please donate to my campaign to raise funds for marine rangers in Africa - this funding is essential to keep rangers employed, equipped, trained and empowered to be out on the water, along our coastlines and embedded in coastal communities.
