WSRE Presents: 

Dr. Ellen Prager

Feb 23, 2017

Dr. Ellen Prager is a marine scientist and author, widely recognized for her expertise and ability to make science entertaining and understandable for people of all ages. She has built a national reputation as a spokesperson on earth and ocean science issues.

Prager is a former chief scientist at the Aquarius Reef Base research program in Key Largo. Her extensive study of how corals build the earth’s reefs led to her book, Sex, Drugs and Sea Slime—a fun, compelling read about the wealth of life in the sea and the need to protect it.

She also served as an assistant dean at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and is currently a freelance writer, consultant, and science advisor to the cruise ship Celebrity Xpedition® in the Galapagos Islands. 

Her newest book, Stingray City, was published in May and is the third book in a fiction series for middle school readers combining humor and fast-paced adventure with learning about the ocean, marine life and ocean issues. Other books for young readers include the award winning Sand, Volcanco, and Earthquakes children’s book series for the National Geographic Society.
