Tiffany T.V. Duong
Tiffany is an adventurer at heart and a lover of all things wild. She endeavors to visit all the wild people and places to tell their stories, so that others can also experience their magic and take part in their preservation. She is constantly inspired by nature at her purest -- in the depths of the jungle and at the bottom of the ocean -- and aims to not only preserve these pristine environments but to also heal degraded ones.
As an environmental advocate and conservation journalist, she inspires others to live more sustainable lives. Her projects and writings explore the interplay of consciousness, convenience, and consumption, as well as their role in destroying and saving our planet. She believes in out-of-the-box problem solving for environmental protections in our modern world.
Tiffany draws on her fieldwork both above the water (at a biodiversity research camp in the Peruvian Amazon) and below (scuba diving to tag shark and restore corals in the Florida reef tract) as inspiration for what changes dedication and sweat labor can produce.
Her volunteerism and work have always encompassed both at-risk individuals (from inner city kids to abused women to homeless populations) as well as fragile ecosystems, as people and their environments are inextricably linked. Tiffany believes we cannot heal one without the other, and that each person plays an important part in creating a better world for everyone.
She currently serves as a Climate Reality Project Leader and as a Coral Reef Conservation and Restoration Intern with the Coral Restoration Foundation in Key Largo, FL.
