Marine ecologist and National Geographic grantee Clare Fieseler uses photography, photo mosaics, and 3D technology to study the impact of climate change on the Caribbean’s resilient but rapidly disappearing coral reefs. Clare’s passion for marine conservation was sparked at an early age as she witnessed the increasing devastation of ocean pollution on her hometown beaches along the New Jersey Shore. Her scientific and photographic work for National Geographic has taken her around the world—from Belize to Zimbabwe. This summer, she will travel to the remote Ascension Island in the South Atlantic Ocean as part of a National Geographic Pristine Seas expedition. A passionate advocate for women in the sciences, Clare is currently working on a media project to document women scientists at work in challenging environments. Her photographic work is represented by National Geographic Creative. Clare joined the Bali expedition in 2017. Expert information for 2018 coming soon.
