Our Executive Director, Dr. Mikki McComb-Kobza , was highlighted by Origins magazine as an Ocean Hero. In her interview she explained her connection to the ocean. “I am passionate about sharing my love of the ocean, the joy of exploration and the importance of science. I have been a scuba diver for 30 years and have seen an ocean of change. As a shark researcher, I’ve witnessed shark populations decline, an indicator that our ocean is in deep trouble. I strive to help individuals and businesses alike find more sustainable ways to connect with the ocean in their everyday lives. Sustainability is my cornerstone and I believe that every action and decision, no matter how small and seemingly insignificant, can have a positive impact”.
