Our guest today on the Outdoor Adventure Series is Sarah Fangman.

Sarah is the Superintendent of Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, overseeing the management and operations of a protected area covering 3,800 square miles. She was appointed to the position in July 2017 after serving as superintendent of Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary, Georgia.

Sarah has been with the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries since 1998, after serving as a U.S. Presidential Management Fellow with NOAA Fisheries in the Northwest and the Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program in Washington, D.C.

Topics We Discussed

  1. Restoration Blueprint, the effort underway to shape the future of the Florida Keys NMS?
  2. What is Mission: Iconic Reefs?
  3. Tell about the professionals and volunteers helping to deliver on the mission of the Florida Keys NMS.

Aha Moment

I can’t claim to have impacted people’s lives. Still, I certainly have been fortunate to be “at the table” helping to shape decisions about important ocean protection efforts for our nation’s ocean treasure.
