About Me Maeva Gauthier is recently graduated from the University of Victoria with a Masters in marine ecology. She is interested in projects encompassing ocean sciences, filmmaking & outreach, and coastal communities. Her background is in biology and tourism. She’s been involved in a few educational initiatives, including an underwater live webcasting project called the Fish Eye Project, which aims to connect classrooms with underwater activities or research. Field expeditions brought her to both poles in 2009 to learn about the Antarctic with Students on Ice and study seafloor species in the Arctic onboard an icebreaker. Maeva is also an active member of the Explorers Club trying to keep an exploration ’vibe’ happening all year long on the West Coast of Canada. Her recent passion for filmmaking was rewarded by the TD Go Green Challenge 2011 (3rd national position) and Best Cinematography & Best Editing awards at the UVic Film Festival 2011. These prizes fueled her motivation to continue filmmaking to share the beauties of this world, scientific research and environmental/social issues. Recently, her work has taken her to two arctic villages in Alaska to give a film workshop with youth and document traditional knowledge of the coast. In her spare time, she loves going sailing, diving, hiking, and doing yoga.
