Tara LaSalla

Inspiration can sometimes be found in the most unusual ways. For Tara, it came in the form of a movie based on a Peter Benchley novel. Steven Spielberg's version of 'JAWS' became a worldwide phenomenon at the time, but unfortunately it also served to spread a great deal of misinformation about sharks.

Tara was fascinated by these creatures from a young age and throughout her schooling she realized that these fish were vital to the health of the world's oceans. This led her to attend Eckerd College in St Petersburg, FL where she received her degree in marine biology.

Tara currently resides in St. Petersburg, FL. She is the co-owner of Going Green Tampa and is an active community leader in the form of environmental and marine conservation and education. Her work with the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Tampa Bay Watch and other local organizations continues to inspire those around her to protect our natural resources. She holds true to one of Mahatma Gandhi's principles: "Be the change you want to see in the world."
