Black Voices of the Ocean

Amplifying Black leaders in marine conservation

Black leadership is a gift and a powerful asset to our institutions, our growing ocean economy, and our efforts to teach the next generation about caring for our seas. Here, we share the stories of Black ocean leaders both to celebrate their extraordinary accomplishments and to support them in their work to shift the status quo of marine conservation.
