Meet the Team
Conservation and education is a collaborative effort. Meet the team that helps make the OctoNation site a reality.
Warren is the Founder & CEO of OctoNation, a nonprofit organization works to inspire wonder of the ocean by teaching the world about octopuses. As a professional community building strategist, Warren has built relationships with underwater photographers, artists, scientists, and aquarists to achieve this mission.
He has created a community where people can interact, learn and be enamored by the ocean through the lens of the octopus. Jacque Cousteau said it best, “People protect what they love.” OctoNation’s 450,000+ members wholeheartedly agree! Consider supporting and getting involved today!
Chelsea (Octo Girl) is based out of South Florida where she spends her time under the sea in octopuses’ gardens. She received her PhD from Florida Atlantic University and is currently involved in research studying octopus’ microbiology and behavior.
Chelsea uses underwater photo and videography to share her research and show her passion for octopuses and marine conservation. She’s bringing the cephalopod knowledge. Get ready, Nation!
