About the Author

Chelsea Behymer

Naturalist

Raised sea kayaking, surfing, and hiking on the Central Coast of California, Chelsea established both curiosity and comfort in her outdoor surroundings early on. After a field ecology course in California's Channel Islands exposed her to the dynamic roles people can play in social-ecological systems, she embarked on a lifelong journey to understand her place. Chelsea received her Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Biology from Hawaii Pacific University where she dove (literally) into coral reef research and explored the micro-scale connections within. Taking her knowledge from the research field, Chelsea has spent nearly a decade professionally communicating the big-picture implications of the 'little things' in variety of marine science and natural history topics onboard marine tour vessels around the globe.
