the conservationist collective
a place to learn - a place to create - a place to progress
Based in O'ahu & creating globally
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.
I'm Carissa Cabrera
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

& I'm Alex Filardo
As a marine biologist and lifelong waterman, I have a passion for photography and film making.
