In memoriam: Erica Knie, president of MarViva


We would like to thank Erica Knie for her deep love for the oceans.

For almost two decades, you passionately strived to preserve the environment, especially marine life. You were committed to helping other people and organizations that fought for the same causes as you and together we were able to face many hardships and attain our goals.

Thank you for your determination, generosity and trust, for your understanding and professionalism.

We will forge ahead with the same spirit and eagerness that you imbued in us to achieve improvements in protecting the oceans.

You left your mark and no one can efface it. You will always be in our thoughts.

Farewell colleague and friend.
