Inspired by her experiences growing up in Japan, Norway and England, Kit Van Wagner has been steadily working her way around the globe, sharing her infatuation with marine life as she goes.
Kit has earned a living as a science educator, scuba instructor, captain, backcountry kayak guide and sailing instructor. Over the years, she has also directed several government-funded marine conservation projects and science education initiatives. Most recently Kit worked with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to raise public awareness about the importance of estuaries, water quality, and coastal climate change impacts.
Since 1999, Kit has also enjoyed working internationally as a naturalist, lecturer, dive master and Zodiac skipper on small expedition ships. At sea, Kit is keen to share her good humor and enthusiasm for wild places, wildlife, and remote cultures.
