About the Author
I am an author, award-winning travel writer, underwater photographer, and avid scuba diver. Citizen science has allowed me to visit the seven continents of the world, assisting scientists. My passion has led me to cage dive with Great White Sharks, scuba dive alongside endangered Dwarf Minke whales, photograph and ID Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, and other large pelagics. I am fascinated by all the creatures in the ocean, and particularly enjoy photographing faces.
Through scientific expeditions with various organizations, I have become acutely aware of the dangers of climate change. I have made it my mission to educate others on the importance of protecting our oceans and the precious lifeforms that dwell in them. My book is the result of my many expeditions and experiences. Anyone with a passion and interest in protecting our Earth can make a difference, including kids. One does not need a Ph.D. in marine biology to encourage others to save the ocean. My experiences are a testament to the effects of crowd-sourced science, and how anyone can do far more than they ever dreamed possible. I encourage everyone, especially kids, to participate in citizen science and volunteer travel, learn about the ocean, and help preserve our ocean resources. As a former University Lecturer and College Consultant, I believe that knowledge is power, and education is always a positive force.
My travel blog, Travels with Tam, chronicles my adventures on all seven continents, including my many dive trips. Head on over and travel the world with me!
