We found our dive buddy!

Congratulations to Krissie Petit for winning the Ocean Science Leadership Program! In partnership with Aggressor Adventures, she will join Georgia Aquarium experts for on-site education sessions in the Caribbean and earn her Advanced dive certification.


Throughout her experience, she’s learned her interest resides is coral restoration. Although she’s discovered her interest through aquarium husbandry programs and lab experience, she’s had limited involvement in the field and has yet to dive in the ocean despite having an open water diver certification for nearly a year.

We hope our program drives her passion for marine conservation forward and helps understand the science behind supporting our reefs.


Ocean Science Leadership Program 2

“I am so grateful and excited to be a part of this Leadership Program and to be able to have my first ocean dives in the Belize Barrier Reef. After completing this program I will use my experience diving in Belize to choose a graduate program that will allow me to focus on protecting and restoring the world’s coral reefs.”
