Dr. Sarah Crosby, a marine ecologist trained in conservation science with extensive experience in coastal and marine ecosystems, will join The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk this week as director of conservation and policy. The new position at the Aquarium is meant to significantly expand its leadership role in local and national conservation issues. — an announcement from The Maritime Aquarium

“Long Island Sound is an ecosystem of profound importance, both to local communities as well as for its biodiversity,” Crosby said. “The transformation that the Sound has undergone in the last 30 years can serve as an inspiration to conservation scientists everywhere; the efforts of our entire region have resulted in a restored and healthier ecosystem. Yet, there is so much more work to be done.”

Crosby will be responsible for shaping and leading the Aquarium’s conservation initiatives and overall strategy, with a focus on the ecosystem of Long Island Sound, but also on broader issues of climate change, species management, marine pollution and other conservation issues that affect the Sound as well as the national and global environment.
