Marine Conservation needs to focus on empowering and including coastal communities to achieve success
When I grew up, I wanted to be a marine biologist. I had this dream that I would work in a small Pacific Islands doing marine science and conservation, but that was probably a form of parachute science and that can hurt marine conservation outcomes. Parachute science happens more often than you think and there is now a call to build in more equity in marine conservation by including local communities in the conservation plans of THEIR coastline.
In this episode of the Speak Up for the Ocean Blue Podcast, I am going to cover why diversity, equity and inclusion are the primary focus of the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon.
