Angela Francess Warrior (Founder and President)
I was born and raised in the United Kingdom. As a child, I spent most of my nights watching David Attenborough documentaries with my father ,and most of my summer holidays digging around for crabs along the beaches of the Lincolnshire coast.
My passion for the ocean grew as I became aware that the ocean is the heart of the planet and that a healthy ocean is essential for all life on Earth. I learnt that the ocean stabilises our climate, provides us with oxygen, food and water, but I also learnt that us humans are exploiting the ocean on an unprecedented scale.
My love for the ocean and the need to protect her was the motivation behind me studying marine biology at undergraduate degree and following on with a masters in shark fisheries management. Since graduating I have worked all around the world; Costa Rica, Thailand, The Bahamas, South Africa, Philippines, The Maldives, Fiji, Indonesia and now Mexico, educating people on the importance of the ocean and how they can help conserve our blue planet.
I want people to love and appreciate the ocean like I do, but this starts with education, as Jacques Cousteau once rightly said “ People protect what they love” , people cannot love something if they don’t know about it.
“In the end we will only conserve what we love, we will only love what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught” Baba Dioum.
