Heather ‘Luna’ Spence
Marine Biologist, Musician, Composer
I work with scientists, politicians and artists in Mexico and the US, to promote my vision of International Sustainability Centers headquartered in Cancun, MX, to foster research and cooperation, bringing together diverse stakeholders to find mutually beneficial solutions for protecting the environment while promoting responsible development. In my personal creative practice, I combine science and sound to create music to better connect humans with our ocean planet.
Support coastal sustainability research and outreach in Cancun and globally.
Just as the order of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle helps us prioritize our actions, remember to RESPECT, RESTORE, REPLACE!
