Ally is an expert in sustainable strategic planning, workforce-enabled sustainability training, and marine tourism education. She recognizes potential obstacles related to switching to more sustainable practices and consistently offers tangible, tailored action plans to make green transitioning a “no-brainer.”
Ally has written and contributed to numerous articles and publications on sustainable tourism, marine tourism, island development, ocean acidification, and genetic diversity between captive and non-captive marine animals.
