As with the climate, so with the oceans: we’re about out of time. Conservation is vitally important – but it’s not going to get the job done by itself. Aquavetic Labs is an ocean restoration engineering startup devoted to ideating and developing technologies that can have meaningful impacts on ocean health.

This is a passion project, to be sure. Before AVL hit a funding wall in late 2018, I’d been working closely with our engineers and scientific advisors to develop whitepapers, funding docs, and messaging priorities. After it got put on hold, I found I never really stopped thinking about it. It was in my bloodstream.

And I wasn’t the only one. The AVL team has reassembled with a renewed focus on ecosystem enrichment technology, as well as an engineering consultancy. 

Our statement of purpose doc is the Manifesto, for which I was lead author and editor—you can check that out here.

For the site, in addition to helping formulate the content strategy, I wrote the copy and put together the layout.
