Chris spent 16 years working as the collector of marine specimens for BAMZ, where he explored Bermuda’s waters and travelled to the Bahamas for a Reef Environmental Education Foundation lionfish study. This inspired him to begin the Bermuda Lionfish Project, a grassroots initiative to control the invasive lionfish population. The project is the key focus of the Bermuda-based Ocean Support Foundation (OSF). Chris also led a local effort to raise support for the creation of a “no-take” marine reserve within Bermuda’s Exclusive Economic Zone to protect both the Sargasso Sea and Bermuda’s marine resources.
