SCIENCE ADVISORS

The SeaDoc Society’s scientific advisors provide counsel on research priorities and scientific issues relating to the health of marine wildlife and the marine ecosystem in the Pacific Northwest and North American Pacific Ocean.

They also provide critical review of pre-proposals and full proposals submitted to the SeaDoc Society Competitive Grants program. Members are appointed in recognition of the prominence they have achieved in their careers, and for their efforts on behalf of ecosystem health in the Salish Sea region.
