How do women scientists and advocates use engineering, marine biology, and environmental sustainability to address climate change and protect our environment? To honor Earth Day 2021, NGCP's Girls Advisory Board (now known as the Youth Advisory Board) led a discussion by girls for girls about career paths related to climate change and sustainability.

Town Hall: Protecting Our Planet Together! was hosted on April 21, 2021 by NGCP and Career Girls. In this recording, women STEM professionals share personal stories of how they fostered their interest in science into rewarding careers.

Noelle Bowlin, Ph.D., is a marine biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) Fisheries, CalCOFI Program Lead in the Southwest Fisheries Science Center, Fisheries Resources Division. Her focus is on the amazing marine life that inhabits the mesopelagic zone. Because this part of the ocean is the area between 200 to 1,000 meters below the surface, the creatures living here feature incredible adaptations such as the ability to emit light to disguise themselves from predators.
