Her memories of exploring the ocean as a child are of much greater abundance of marine life and a fraction of the plastic littering beaches and the sea floor. Though she is disheartened by the  degradation of the marine environment, Alexandra believes that we can aspire to leave our children an ocean abundant with life and reverse the flow of plastic away from the ocean. Her work primarily consists of public speaking, advising non-profits, government, and industry as well as collaborating with communities, the media and forward thinking brands.

Learn more about her new organization to catalyze the restoration of abundant oceans in one human generation.  Oceans 2050.

From now through the next decade, we can create catalytic changes that allow us to regenerate, rebuild, and restore the lost abundance of our oceans. So, that by 2050, our children have the same abundance that my grandfather once knew. This is my mission.

The next decade will determine the future of our single global ocean upon which each of us depends. This shared opportunity to restore the lost abundance that our grandparents once knew is one that requires us to look beyond our differences and embrace radical collaboration. As we work to better understand how it connects us all, I believe we will realize that we can be… that we must be, connected in working together for solutions as well.
