A world of mystery

You are here

August 7, 2014
Meg Malloy was first enchanted by water as a little girl at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware. There, she says, "I felt the magic of coming upon a tidal pool, observing the creatures left by the tide. I was fascinated that it connected so many countries and areas, that there was a whole world under the ocean that we humans didn't fully comprehend, and I fell in love with the mystery of it."
She considered making the study of water her career early on. After reading pioneering marine biologist Eugenie Clark's book Shark Lady, she says, "I would go home and write pretend research papers on sharks and other ocean organisms, imagining I was on a ship."
