Natasha thoroughly enjoys being at the forefront of public education and engagement, increasing public awareness of current environmental concerns, research and solutions. Natasha has been in a variety of informal educator roles, including The BC Ministry of Environment and World Fisheries Trust.

Combining her passions for education and the marine ecosystem she was led directly to ONC, where she now encourages K-12 teachers to incorporate hands-on experiential ocean science into the curriculum. Natasha’s goal is to increase the ocean literacy of Canada’s youth, and inspire the next generation of ocean stewards.Natasha hopes to continue in this field and is currently pursuing her Masters in Environmental Education and Communications.

"The ocean provides us with oxygen, resources, food and a means of transportation. It greatly influences our weather and is a major carbon sink. I believe that everyone on the planet needs to recognize his or her connection to the ocean and understand that our livelihood on land it directly connected to the health of the ocean. I am thrilled to be exploring the deep sea and hope to inspire youth and adults alike to join this adventure and peer under the waves!"
