Maddie Warner is thrilled to join The Ocean Foundation as the Deep Seabed Mining Moratorium Science Communication Intern. She is a current graduate student at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey pursuing an MA in International Environmental Policy with a concentration in Ocean and Coastal Resource Management. Her long term goals include building an ocean conservation career by promoting science literacy and environmental education. She is constantly inspired by the impact that good science communication can have for the public as well as policy makers. Maddie has been diving into the complex worlds of deep ocean conservation, international marine law, and underwater cultural heritage during her studies, and is excited to support the TOF team on these topics.
