Science Advocacy Publication

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Graduate students, Marcy Cockrell, Kate Dubickas, Megan Hepner, Alex Ilich, and Matt McCarthy, published an article in Fisheries encouraging scientists and science-minded citizens to participate in science advocacy. This article came out of their collective advocacy, communication, and policy experiences, largely spurred by the Ocean Policy class taught right here at CMS. Their experiences, and this subsequent article, would not have been possible without support from Dean Dixon, Dr. Frank Muller-Karger, and Dr. Mark Luther.

The article highlights not only the importance of science communication and advocacy but also guidelines to help graduate students and early career scientists seek opportunities to promote scientifically-informed policy.
