Chief Mate of Development and Communications (Glen Ellen, CA)

Hannah Hindley is a naturalist, mariner, international guide, and award-winning science writer. She holds degrees in English and Organismic and Evolutionary Biology from Harvard University, is an alumnus of the Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program, and has an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from University of Arizona. For the last decade, her outdoor career has carried her from Mexico and Hawaii to Glacier Bay, Yosemite, and Wrangell-St. Elias National Parks. She has designed curriculum for museums and aquariums, taught aboard historic wooden sailing ships in the Salish Sea, edited content for Blue Ocean Institute’s Sea Stories journal, and guided wilderness trips across ice, sea, desert, tundra, and rainforest. She holds a 100 Ton Master Near Coastal license and continues to work aboard small adventure vessels in Southeast Alaska. She is thrilled to bring her love of the sea and her enthusiasm for human connection to her role on the communications and development team at Marine Conservation Institute. When she’s not working, you can find Hannah pack-rafting, stilt-walking, backpacking, and looking for squishy things under tidepool rocks.
