CYNTHIA ABACO

Content/Research Manager

 

My previous work as an education specialist and historic interpreter has provided me with practical experience in public interpretation as well as hands-on experience with museum exhibits. This has been an asset to my interpretive planning and writing here at Wilderness Graphics for the past 10 years. Owning my own graphics and screen printing company for over 20 years has also afforded me a knowledge of project planning, production, and administration.

Earning my B.S. in Biology from Duke University with studies at Duke’s Marine Lab and the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Research, as well as work at NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries and Oceanographic Laboratories has given me a solid knowledge of marine and environmental science. Work aboard the R/V Researcher allowed me to visit the Caribbean, Africa, Hawaii, and Tahiti. Inspired, I lived for 10 years aboard my own sailboat, cruising and diving throughout Florida, The Bahamas, the eastern Caribbean, and South America. I am now content to explore the rivers of North Florida in my kayak!
