Andy Kuhlken Reef Habitat Design Tech
I have always been really passionate about the outdoors, ever since I was little. When I was younger, I couldn't wait to turn twelve so that I could get Scuba certified like my parents. On my first ever dive, our whole family took a dive trip to Thailand, and what I saw was not what I expected. The reef was not like what you see in all those amazing photos. What I saw was just trash and rubble from years of coral bleaching and human activity. That brought new light to the subject of solutions. When I attended the IUCN World Conservation Congress and heard Melody from Reef Life talk about their work, I was so grateful be given the opportunity to do this work, work that I know matters.
