Ever since her childhood on the beaches of the Jersey Shore, Chelsea Eareckson has loved the ocean. Today, as climate change threatens the fragile balance of many of the ocean’s ecosystems, Eareckson, a double major in leadership studies and biology, is on a mission to help restore the ocean and promote conservation. In the past, Chelsea has participated in research on sea sponges and their role in the changing ocean atmosphere, contributing to a bigger picture of the effects of climate change on marine life. As research officer, Chelsea ensures the development and successful execution of a monitoring plan to measure the success of restoration activities in West Maui.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.Mother Teresa
