Chad worked in the tourism and commercial boating industry before finding his calling in marine conservation. Since joining The Nature Conservancy in 2008, Chad implemented research projects to better understand the impacts of invasive fish and plants, cesspools, landscaping, erosion, ocean warming, sea level rise, and fishing on coastal and marine life. As the Hawaiʻi Island Marine Program Director, he leads participatory planning processes to improve fishery policy, land management, and coastal infrastructure, and helps strengthen collective knowledge and expertise by supporting community networks representing more than a dozen communities.
