Paola Espitia, M.Sc. is passionate about making media that moves people to action. For two decades, she worked to understand and conserve coral reef ecosystems as a marine biologist. Her research led her to dive Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Belize’s Barrier Reef, and Cuba’s Jardines de la Reina National Park. But when she realized she could make a bigger impact by using her voice, she became a Speaker-at-Sea cruising over 25,000 nautical miles aboard world-class cruise lines educating thousands of people about ocean conservation. Today, Paola leads coastal expeditions aboard National Geographic Lindblad Expeditions ships, produces environmental films at @olapicreative and serves as an adjunct professor of Oceanography at the Florida Institute of Technology. However, her biggest contribution towards a better, bluer future is raising an outdoor-loving son. Paola holds a M.Sc. from the Nova Southeastern University Halmos College of Arts and Sciences and a B.Sc. from the University of Delaware.



Our lecture series, The Future of Oceans, draws on the commitment of professional researchers and educators across all academic spectrums to help define and inspire the health of our oceans.
