Emma Hickerson is a zoologist who served as Research Coordinator for the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary from 1997 through 2021. During that period, she helped collect extensive data to guide the 2021 expansion of the Sanctuary to include 14 additional banks and reefs, comprising a wide diversity of corals, sponges, and other marine life. However, she was disappointed to see how politics interfered with the process, and cut the proposed expansion dramatically.
