SCCF appoints Lucas as community outreach coordinator
Sam Lucas will take on a new role at the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation. She joined the Sanibel Sea School in 2017 as the conservation initiative coordinator and marine science educator.
Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Lucas spent her childhood summers exploring Florida’s Gulf Coast. She earned a Bachelor of Science in biology from Salisbury University on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. While at school, Lucas worked as a naturalist at a local discovery center, where her passion for environmental education was ignited.
In her new role, she will coordinate volunteers across all SCCF departments and will continue to promote, organize and manage all Coastal Watch activities.
“I am thrilled to be starting a new role at SCCF,” Lucas said. “I look forward to continue working with our community through Coastal Watch and now with our amazing volunteer base.”
The mission of Coastal Watch is to create and implement local conservation initiatives that promote and improve the future of marine resources and the coastal heritage.
