Chief Scientist for Aquarius Reef base, movie consultant for Disney, author. Quite the resume isn’t it?

That’s just the tip of the iceberg for today’s guest, Dr. Ellen Prager.

Exploring the watery world, and sharing it with others, is another one of Dr. Prager’s superhero talents. Marine scientist, both non-fiction and fiction author, she currently working as a freelance writer, consultant, and science advisor to Celebrity Cruises in the Galapagos Islands. She has appeared on large network television such as the Today Show and Good Morning America, in shows for the Discovery Channel and was a consultant for the Disney movie, Moana.

In today’s episode, we chat about the verge of conch, what it’s like working as a marine scientist in the St. Croix and the Bahamas paradises, how Dr. Prager influenced policy and created underwater maps that are still used today. Dr. Prager also shares her favorite tales from the Galapagos including close encounters with sea lions, orcas, and humpback whales.
