F. Joseph Pollock, U.S. Fulbright alumnus and Founding Director of the Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders in Marine Science and JCU PhD recently returned from the United States after attending the Our Ocean conference.

"I was honored to participate in US Secretary of State John Kerry’s Our Ocean Conference and accompanying Future Leadership Summit this past week," he said. 

"Over $5 billion dollars were committed to ocean conservation and nearly four million square kilometers of ocean gained new protection, but I was most struck by all of the amazing things young ocean leaders are doing to protect our irreplaceable marine resources. 

"The conference has me energized and extremely excited about all of the great things Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders in Marine Science (ATSIMS) alumni will do, and are already doing, to help protect Land and Sea Country!!"
