Sarika Cullis-Suzuki, marine scientist, journalist and advocate, an expert on high-seas fisheries conservation and the offshore conservation territories known as “marine protected areas.”

Sarika Cullis-Suzuki is a marine biologist who studies high-seas fisheries, marine wildlife sanctuaries, and the effects of human development on sea life, especially in the inter-tidal zones of the Pacific Ocean. Born and raised in British Columbia, she is the youngest daughter of scientist David Suzuki and writer and environmentalist Tara Cullis. A childhood and youth spent steeped in the sea life around Quadra Island, B.C., have given Cullis-Suzuki a passion for science and for protecting the oceans that she says sustain all human life.
