Tiffany Duong left the corporate world behind to travel the world to work for herself and the planet by creating Ocean Rebels.

We cover how to find a job in ocean conservation, where her journey took her, and the importance of keeping the discussions of climate change and ocean conservation close. I asked her how to work in marine conservation, and she provided some fantastic insights with refreshing honesty. It can be scary, but it is infinitely rewarding.
