Newest Field Rep: Cook Islands’ Tuaine Tuara
We’re pleased to announce we’ve added Tuaine Tuara to our worldwide roster of Seacology field representatives. Tuara will help Seacology execute projects throughout her home nation of the Cook Islands.
Tuara is a conservation advocate from Mangaia, the second largest of the Cook Islands. In 1999 she and her husband founded the Mangaia Tanga’eo Environmental Rangers, an award-winning NGO promoting environmental awareness and education among Cook Island children. Trained as a nurse, Tuara manages her family’s bakery while continuing to work with local environmental groups as an adviser and mentor to support local conservation issues.
