Karen Sack-Uniting Our Big Blue Planet
From a childhood spent in Johannesburg miles away from any Ocean to now heading up Ocean Unite, Karen Sack has made it her passion and her mission to fight for our beautiful big blue planet.
In this episode of MHP, Karen chats about growing up in South Africa during apartheid and working tirelessly to help create the Ross Sea Reserve.. She explains why, (beyond the fact that every second breath we take comes from them), our oceans are critical to our survival, what issues they face in this age of the Anthropocene and why she feels a little bit guilty for being Richard Branson’s support crew.
Karen Sack is the Managing Director of Ocean Unite. She has worked for numerous conservation organisations including Greenpeace, the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition, and is the former Senior Director for International Oceans at the Pew Charitable Trusts.
