Co-Lead, STRONG High Seas Project Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS)
Potsdam, Germany, Swiss
Being from a landlocked country, it was seeing whales when she was 11 that got Carole hooked on marine issues. This passion took her to Germany to study marine environmental sciences. While working for IUCN, Carole discovered the lack of protection afforded to the high seas (half of the Earth’s surface). This led her to do a PhD in international law in Australia, to help policymakers make better informed decisions about ocean conservation. Carole co-leads the STRONG High Seas project at IASS, working to strengthen ocean governance for high seas biodiversity conservation.
