Fourteen ocean conservation leaders from 11 countries, all part of the New England Aquarium’s Marine Conservation Action Fund (MCAF) Fellows program, are participating, both in-person and virtually, in a summit to share their experiences with the public during a Global Conservation Day and symposium on Sept. 25 + 26.

The MCAF Fellows are visionary, accomplished, and internationally recognized ocean conservation leaders spearheading research and community-based conservation on marine species and habitats across the globe. Their work ranges from Haiti to Indonesia and involves advancing protections for species of sharks, sea turtles, and whales through science, policy engagement, and education. The Aquarium invests in MCAF Fellows through a multi-faceted approach that includes financial, technical, and professional resources to support the success of their conservation initiatives and the sustainability of their organizations.

The summit will showcase the innovation and entrepreneurship of the MCAF Fellows, nurture new collaborations, and highlight their role as key members of the Aquarium's global conservation community. During the symposium, MCAF Fellows will present their research and conservation work and the lessons they’ve learned in community-based conservation. This event will have an audience Q&A component and will also be available via live stream with Spanish interpretation. For some one-on-one time with the Fellows, the public is invited to meet with these conservation leaders who will be stationed around the Aquarium showcasing their work through hands-on activities and stories from the field.
