Hey everyone, my name is Da Chen and I am a recent graduate from the University of Toronto Scarborough. I double majored in City Studies and Political Science. I am very interested in the Ocean Bridge Program because I want to learn skills and tools to better engage urban audiences about the importance of ocean conservation. At first glance, my educational background has little to do with conservation or ocean. However, my experiences over the past 4 years allowed me to learn and connect with the ocean in many ways and grew my love and appreciation for them. I was part of the Parks Canada Northern Engagement team last summer and travelled to the Arctic with Students on Ice. I was also a part of the Canadian Delegation at the 4th International Marine Protected Area Congress(IMPAC4) in Chile last September.
I am excited to be a part of Ocean Bridge and to continue my learning about marine conservation. I look forward to meeting and connecting with everyone from across Canada and learn new ways to make a difference in Canada.
