Kate Parker is one the founder members of Daughters of the Deep and is Head of Operations for Oceania.
Kate is a qualified Dive Master and passionate diver, having been lucky enough to have dived in many locations around the world. This experience has opened her eyes to both the beauty in the oceans but also the extent to which human life has damaged our planet and the necessity to fight for the protection of our seas.
This inspired Kate to join Sea Shepherd and she regularly crews offshore defending marine environments. Kate also runs the Sea Shepherd Dive program in Australia/NZ with a goal to drive industry standards up to a more environmentally focused level.
Having seen first hand the under representation of women in many popular dive locations globally, Kate is honoured and excited to be part of a movement that combines both her core values regarding equal rights for women, and her passion in conservation diving.
In her spare time, Kate is also a member of the Coast Guard, as well as a full time speech pathologist
