About the Author

Chelsea Behymer

Naturalist

Raised sea kayaking, surfing, and hiking on the Central Coast of California, Chelsea established an early connection to her surroundings. After a field ecology class on the Channel Islands exposed her to the world of conservation, she never looked back. Chelsea received her Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Biology from Hawaii Pacific University where she dove (literally) into coral reef research, which continued to fuel her fascination with the interconnectedness among and within ecosystems. Taking her knowledge from the research field, Chelsea has spent the past five years working as an onboard Naturalist in Alaska, the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Iceland, Patagonia and the Pacific Coast of North America engaging cruise ship passengers in marine science and natural history.
