    Episode 070 - Dr. Kristen Weiss and Buttercup the Oceanpup share how project commitment leads to impact

    Episode 070 - Dr. Kristen Weiss and Buttercup the Oceanpup share how project commitment leads to impact

    Dr. Kristin Weiss and Buttercup the Oceanpup. Dr. Kristen Weiss is currently Communications Coordinator for the Long Term Ecological Research network.
    Previously, she was an early career fellow in Science Communication at the Center for Ocean Solutions, Stanford University, and before that a lecturer in the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Southern California where she taught courses focused on ecology, sustainability, and natural resource management.
    Kristen received her PhD from James Cook University in Queensland, Australia, where she studied marine governance using policy network analysis. Her goal is to continue communicating about significant environmental issues and contribute to better conservation and management strategies to protect our threatened ecosystems.
    In her free time she enjoys adventures with her tiny dog Buttercup–on her stand-up paddle board, at the beach, or in the forest. And taking naps.
    Kristen and I met at a 2 week fellowship sponsored by the Center for Ocean solutions six years ago, she had just recently adopted Buttercup a tiny yellow chihuahua that steals your heart away.
    When I first met the duo, it was like they had been together forever, the little dog looked like she woke up in Kristens arms… I am excited to dive into the platforms Kristen created with Buttercup to get her dog involved for creating a better world, and much more!

    Episode 068 - Kathi George leads whale entanglement solutions and volunteers in California

    Episode 068 - Kathi George leads whale entanglement solutions and volunteers in California

    Kathi George is the Global Response Project Manager for the Marine Mammal Center located in Sausalito, CA. She has over 15 years of experience with marine mammal entanglements, specializing in entangled whale response. She’s been on several large whale entanglement cases and trained many volunteers on how disentangle a whale. Kathi and I have been friends for several years now. We met when she first started the California Whale Rescue a non-profit dedicated to serving the community of volunteers who help to untangle entangled whales. Through working together, we came up with a budget and scope to help volunteers, through my efforts during my Sea Grant Fellowship I was able to secure their first major funds that would get the nonprofit off the ground. Since then with Kathi’s leadership she has partnered with one of the biggest marine mammal rescues in California and is leading other amazing projects related to her new role, which I can’t wait to learn more about in this discussion today.
