I'm Carissa and I'm a marine conservationist, educator, traveler, diver, writer, surfer, and creative. As a marine biologist, I kept coming across individuals that wanted to heal the planet but did not know where to start, or thought the problems could only be solved by others.


The Conservationist Collective is a space for everyone to explore ocean conservation, marine science, plastic-free living, sustainability, mindful consumption, and creative content for our planet.


Above all, this page is aimed to inspire others to take agency and responsibility in their own journey as conservationists and help create positive change for our planet right now.

"Never doubt that a

small group of thoughtful, committed citizens

can change the world;

indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

-Margaret Mead
