Meet Sailors for the Sea’s Onboard Reporter!

Doug Karlson, Communications@Sea.edu

SEA Semester

Sailors for the Sea Onboard Reporter Anna Brodmerkel

We’re thrilled to once again join with Sailors for the Sea, a leading ocean conservation organization, for our “Onboard Reporter” program.

This is a special partnership that began last year. Each term, one SEA Semester student is designated as Sailors for Sea's "Onboard Reporter," and receives a $1,500 award.

This spring, the Onboard Reporter is Anna Brodmerkel, a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Anna is currently sailing aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer as a member of C-273, Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (known around here as MBC).

In addition to her SEA Semester studies and duties, Anna’s job will be to raise awareness about the ocean through blogging, storytelling, social media posts, photography and video. 

Here’s her first report.

Please join us in following Anna’s voyage, and her reports!
