Emma DeLoughry joined Save the Sound’s Soundkeeper team in June 2022 as the Associate Soundkeeper working to protect, restore and defend the public right to drinkable, fishable, swimmable water in the Long Island Sound.
Emma’s background in marine science and familiarity with the Long Island Sound ecosystem have prepared her for a career in environmental education and public outreach. Before she joined Save the Sound she worked as the Assistant Naturalist at the Marine Education Center at Harbor Island Park in Mamaroneck developing and delivering hands-on marine educational programs for students, campers and the general public.
Emma holds an M.S. in Earth & Environmental Resource Management from the University of South Carolina where she worked with the South Carolina Aquarium to direct, film, edit and produce her own documentary on the issue of macroplastic pollution in South Carolina’s waterways. Her film screened at five educational institutions throughout the state and was broadcasted on SCETV. She is excited to continue her work by identifying water quality concerns and driving public and government action to remedy these issues at Save the Sound in the future!
