Marine Protection Atlas Intern

Despite growing up far from the ocean in Michigan, Elijah has realized a passion for sharks since an early age. This interest took him to the University of Hawai’i at Hilo, where he pursued a bachelor’s degree in marine science. He discovered here that he wants to help preserve ocean biodiversity through merging science and policy. This led Elijah to pursue a Master of Professional Science Degree in Marine Conservation at the University of Miami. He hopes to contribute to the conservation of endangered species of sharks and rays. In his recreational pursuits, Elijah enjoys nothing more than diving with wild and wonderful marine creatures.
