Tanner Waters

University of California, Los Angeles
2020-2021 Fellow
PhD Candidate

Why are you applying for the NRWD? "I am studying the impacts of a seagrass transplant restoration on community composition and the impacts of marine protected area designation on biodiversity and species abundance. Additionally, I am studying the morphological and physiological effects caused by the interaction of ocean acidification and hypoxia on red and purple sea urchins. The relevance of my interests to the fellowship science theme would be applying my skillset and methodologies to landscape-scale disturbances instead of landscape-scale restorations." 
What do you hope to gain? "I believe that the SW CASC NWRD fellowship would aid in my professional development and career goals by providing training and interactions with resource managers and other decision makers."
