With support from Coastal fund UCSB associated students
“Whether I am making observations through a microscope or camera lens, I strive to capture a unique view of the world around me.”– Avery DeSantis
Avery DeSantis is currently a fourth-year student at UCSB studying Biological Sciences with an Art Minor.
This exhibition strives to provide an interdisciplinary view of marine conservation. DeSantis believes that investigating this topic through art will help further distill the impact of climate change and pollution on ocean life. She also aims to create a lasting impression on the UCSB community and encourage others to preserve the local coastline. DeSantis’s main inspirations include her ongoing biology education, passion for conservation, and involvement in marine science research with the Hofmann Laboratory.
DeSantis would like to thank her faculty advisor, Dr. Helen Taschian, the Hofmann laboratory, and friends that have aided her along her journey.
