As the science writer for the early Science of Marine Reserves booklets, Peter H. Taylor integrated and distilled pertinent scientific information to make it accessible and useful for policymakers, managers, and stakeholders. He worked closely with SMR’s team of science and policy experts to ensure that the best, most up-to-date science was communicated accurately. Peter is the principal of Waterview Consulting in Yarmouth, Maine. His primary interest is finding and implementing innovative methods for transferring science from the knowledge realm to the action realm. For more than a decade, Peter has planned and produced communication resources (printed and interactive) for non-profit, government, academic, and commercial organizations at local to international scales. His writing and photography have also been published in Outside, National Wildlife, Sierra, and other magazines.
