“It’s important to foster ocean empathy in as many ways as we can,” says Josheena Naggea, an ocean advocate and doctoral candidate at Stanford University.
Her community-based research focuses on small-scale fisheries, protected area management, and the valorization of natural and cultural heritage in marine governance in the Western Indian Ocean. She has most recently worked on assessing the compounding social impacts of COVID-19 and the 2020 Wakashio oil spill disaster on coastal communities in Mauritius, her home country.
Josheena is interested in understanding people-nature connections and how that influences pro-ecological behaviour, which refers to the actions that people take to either reduce environmental harm or actively help restore the natural environment.
In this conversation, we’ll talk about the concept of the social ocean, ocean advocacy, and connectedness to nature.
