Support the Rafe Sagarin Fund for Innovative Ecology

The Rafe Sagarin Fund seeks to support early career scientists to conduct creative research in marine science that includes a strong component of observational ecology. The fund was created to encourage scientists to “think outside the box” in developing and applying observational approaches to address important ecological and societal questions tied to the world’s oceans.
