NAMEPA is teaming up with local high schools to spread knowledge and share opportunities with students interested in careers in the maritime industry and environmental conservation. NAMEPA’s mission is unique as it bridges the gap between commerce and preservation, making NAMEPA a quintessential example of the dynamic positions available in the field of marine science and maritime industries.
I once wrote an article entitled “Oceans: Earth’s Final Frontier” in which I cited the statistic that, despite covering 70% of the earth’s surface, only 5% of oceans have been explored by humans. It is no surprise then that so many people are fascinated by the oceans. As a fellow ocean lover, I understand why one may be enamored of the mysteries, the possibilities for exploration, the need for protection, and the ability to manipulate the ecosystem for use for human progress. The possibilities for working with the ocean are limitless.
