What's Next for Rig2Reef Explorers / by Amber Jackson

We are nearing the end of our Master's program in the Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. What an incredible year it has been!

Looking forward, we hope to keep the momentum going on the Rig2Reef Exploration initiative. Our future tentative expeditions include diving and filming on oil and gas platform Eureka in late June. We want to dive on this platform to convey the resilience of life on Earth and how even from the most unlikely of places, life can emerge and thrive. Then, in August, we will be traveling to the Gulf of Mexico to re-do our dive in the Flower Gardens National Marine Sanctuary.

In September we will be lecturing at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific. This lecture is open to the public and more information can be found here.
