Youth Ambassador Profile: Dahlia Hassell

Dahlia and Shark Stanley go for a swim
As Shark Stanley circles the globe he comes across young people who are working to save sharks. These Youth Ambassadors inspire the rest of us, old and young alike, to take action to make changes in our own backyards.

Dahlia Hassell was raised on the small Dutch Caribbean island of Saba. From childhood, she participated in the after school environmental awareness programs of the Saba Conservation Foundation, where she developed her passion for protecting nature. In college, she majored in Biology and then returned to Saba to work as a Saba Bank Park Officer where she continues to help preserve the underwater environment.

All of the Youth Ambassadors are asked the same set of four questions. Here's what Dahlia had to say:

When and how did you first become interested in sharks?
I first became interested in sharks when the Saba Conservation team and I saved a baby nurse shark from a ghost trap. After that, I was hooked on learning more about sharks!

How are you working to help save the world’s sharks?
Through education in the primary and secondary schools, I am able to teach the children that sharks are not killing machines, and are desperately needed in our waters.

Who are your conservation heroes?
Susan Hurrell, Past Education Officer at the Saba Conservation Foundation; Lynn Costenaro, Founder of Sea & Learn in Saba; and Dr. Sylvia Earle.

How would you suggest other people get involved in the protection of sharks?
-Help spread awareness of the preservation of sharks through social media, education, and personal conversations.
