The Hershman Fellowship offers a first-hand experience in crafting marine and natural resource policies and enables fellows to share their academic expertise with state decision makers. Host offices for 2014-2015 are the Department of Health, Department of Ecology, the Puget Sound Partnership, The Nature Conservancy and the Makah Tribe Office of Marine Affairs. Projects for 2014-2015 include coastal hazards and resiliency, climate change and marine biotoxins, vessel traffic safety and oil spill prevention, marine habitat conservation, and protection and recovery strategies in Puget Sound.
