Sewanee students Hannah-Marie Garcia (Environment and Sustainability major), Kaylee Pierson (Natural Resources), and Ann Robinson (Environment and Sustainability), all C’19, are part of a select group of undergraduates from diverse U.S. institutions who are spending this semester sailing through the waters of New Zealand. Their goal is to better understand one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century: human impacts on the environment.

Through SEA Semester: The Global Ocean, a study abroad program offered by Sea Education Association (SEA), these students are exploring first-hand the unique environmental and complex cultural influences that have shaped these islands, all from the unique learning platform of a tall ship.

The class arrived in early September for six weeks of preparatory coursework on shore at SEA Semester’s campus in the oceanographic research community of Woods Hole, Massachusetts. On Nov. 12, the students arrived aboard the SSV Robert C. Seamans, SEA’s state-of-the-art 134-foot brigantine, in Auckland, New Zealand, to begin a six-week coastal and blue water voyage.
