UNEXPECTED PATHS INTO MARINE CONSERVATION
ADVICE FROM THE OCEAN
Book contributors are extraordinary people working in the field of marine conservation. They are all unique in the paths and approaches they take to conservation. These contributors are drawing inspiration from unexpected places to create change, because the intersection of marine science and other disciplines is where innovation and inspiration begins.
Marine conservation is so much more than just biology. As such, we want to expose some of the unexpected career paths into marine conservation by compiling peoples' unique experiences. Young people need a guide of ways to enter such an expansive field in untraditional ways. We hope to expose paths that may be surprising at times, and at others reveal the importance of multidisciplinary approaches.
This book is sprinkled with advice from the ocean, and those who fight for it. In this volume, you will find personal essays from people working in law, art, engineering, literature, medicine, robotics, and so many more fields. This diverse group of people will share their career paths into marine conservation. How did they get there? What challenges and opportunities did the find along the way? These are a few of the questions guiding their essays.

I'm a high school student whose love for scuba diving and marine conservation is met with passion for woodworking, sculpting, and painting. I see my future at the intersection of the arts, sciences, engineering, entrepreneurship, international relations, and so much more. This is the book that I wish I already had!
I'm a college professor who is passionate about expanding students' understanding of potential career choices, with particular attention to interdisciplinary opportunities and building a life of purpose in ways that are creative and personally meaningful. Could there be anything better than working with my daughter on the publication of this book? I think not :)
