I love marine biology and ecology and am passionate about education and outreach. I want to inspire young people and turn a "boring" or "hard" subject into something that is worth learning, worth doing, and something that is FUN. I want to show you that there are SO many cool things in the ocean, especially in the Gulf of Maine. Things besides cod and lobster, things that grow under rocks and on top of mussel shells, things that are highly influential to everyday life of the marine ecosystem. Did you know that bryozoans create an added texture that can serve as a great substrate for many other marine invertebrates? Do you even know what a bryozoan is? If not, I want to SHOW you!
