Jennifer Kaleouionalani Metz Kane HIMB
COSEE Island Earth Program Manager
Primary COSEE Affiliation:
- Island Earth
Background with Respect to Ocean Sciences Education:
My ocean sciences education experiences began while teaching at several residential science camps out of college including Newfound Harbor Marine Institute (FL), Catalina Island Marine Institute (CA), and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OR). Following nearly ten years in this field, I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in a remote village in the Philippines working with, and living in, a fishing community. Over the three years of my service I developed coastal education programs for the community, taught a coral reef curriculum at the local high school, and worked with a youth and woman's group on alternative livelihood projects. Directly prior to working for COSEE, I spent eight years at NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Region as their marine protected species Education and Outreach Specialist.
