"I feel so fortunate to be working with such a dedicated and multidisciplinary team striving towards the protection of Roatan’s marine ecosystems."
Grace is Research Coordinator. She is half-Spanish, half-British and first fell in love with the sea during her childhood summers spent sailing at the English seaside. After getting a BSc in Economics from the University of Leeds, she worked at a school library in the Galapagos Islands. It was there that her eyes were opened to the community that strived so much for conservation and she has been focusing on marine conservation ever since. She learned to dive while volunteering in Belize and came to Roatan as an intern for MarAlliance. During that time she worked on a project to establish the economic impact of shark tourism. It was then that she fell in love with the Bay Islands and went on to complete her Divemaster and Instructor Development Course. Grace graduated from University of Edinburgh with a Master’s in Marine System and Policies. She runs the Asexual Coral Restoration and Fish Spawning Aggregation programs.
