After tweeting about the lack of diversity among marine scientists, Moore, an environmental ecologist, founded blackinmarinescience.org. She told the magazine:
“I founded Black in Marine Science after the injustices of 2020 in the world infiltrated the STEM community. We started having conversations about the lack of diversity in marine science. I tweeted one day, ‘Where is everyone that is Black and in marine science?’ and so many people responded. For the first time, I wasn’t isolated or alone.”
