Instructor Bio

Director of Education

Richard Coward

Richard Coward is a Marine Ecologist and Lecturer. He has a BSc in Ecology from Griffith University, Queensland and a wealth of international marine experience. Richard established Ocean Life Education in 2006 and today is responsible for educating and inspiring thousands of student every year to respect the ocean and it's inhabitants. Richard commenced his career running Sunshine Coast’s Underwater World education programs and was later promoted to Curator of Fishes. He went on to work on the creation of a new aquarium in South Korea. Whilst diving in the ocean, he was astonished by the complete lack of marine life. This was the first time Richard had experienced first-hand the devastating consequences of human impact caused by over-fishing. This education inspired him to take action. Richard saw this as a wakeup call and was determined this was not going to be allowed to happen in Australia. Thus, his passion for protecting the ocean and educating the community to do the same was born.
