“The idea is not so much… to change peoples’ minds or make people want to be scientists. But, many girls, because they don’t see role models, think that they can’t do it.”

Dive with Coral Reef Biologist Dr. Tamar Goulet! A marine biology professor at the University of Mississippi who you can also catch in a wetsuit, diving in the ocean to research preserving coral reefs, particularly Octocorals. She looks at how environmental problems affect the reefs and the organisms who live there, and how the creatures cope. Along the way, her goal is to be a role model to inspire young women to pursue a career they want.
