Robin Aube is the Manager of Advancement at AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles. She grew up in San Pedro but has been a Palos Verdes resident for 25 years. As a member of the innovative ocean and marine science campus, Robin manages community outreach, educational programming and the UrgentSea annual campaign along with donor relations. AltaSea is a public-private venture redeveloping 35 acres of dockland at the Port of Los Angeles. We are building a world-class campus focused on ocean sustainability, with a program model designed to generate ocean-based solutions to global sustainability issues through collaboration among businesses, researchers, explorers, conservationists and educators. We have already attracted leaders in sustainable aquaculture, undersea robotics, ocean exploration and marine science and strive to generate solutions to the most critical global sustainability issues today: food, energy, and climate security.
