Caroline Wood works as a campaign organizer for Oceana’s Field Team, covering the mid-Atlantic states of Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey.
She works together with volunteers, students, community leaders, business owners, elected officials, and partner groups to build support for Oceana's U.S. Campagins, especially to prevent the expansion of offshore drilling and promote offshore wind energy as a clean alternative to fossil fuels.
She is grateful and excited to be able to work full time to protect the oceans she loves, and fight climate change in order to move to a more just and sustainable future. Caroline grew up in Virginia Beach, spending summer days at the beach and working as an educator at the Virginia Aquarium in her spare time. She has a degree in Anthropology and Environmental Policy from the College of William & Mary, where she was also active in the Student Environmental Action Coalition. Before starting at Oceana, she worked as a Park Ranger at the War in the Pacific National Historical Park on Guam, leading student groups on snorkeling and hiking trips and teaching them about sustainability, citizen activism, and coral reef ecology. Caroline loves to scuba dive, play board games, and generally spend as much time as possible outdoors.
