Logan Ossentjuk

Pronouns: he/him/his

Logan Ossentjuk graduated summa cum laude from Seattle University in 2021 with a B.S. in Marine and Conservation Biology and a Film Studies Minor. His fascination with marine organisms began at age 3, reveling in a flourish of Reef Triggerfish while snorkeling in Kauai. He obtained skills in production as digital media intern at ClearChoice Dental and published research assessing crustacean biodiversity markers in the Puget Sound. This led him to study abroad in the Galapagos Islands where he conducted underwater biodiversity, abundance surveys, and assembled a mock management plan for conservation research. Logan combined his passion for nature-focused storytelling by creating science-based media content. He has created a podcast exploring the controversy surrounding environmental protections as the head of Digital Media at Conservation Made Simple. Logan also produced films exploring how colonizing the Puget Sound region and straightening of the Duwamish River altered salmon populations and the livelihoods of the Duwamish peoples. Logan aspires to conduct community-based research and produce educational, call-to-action conservation films. At Bren, his specialization is Coastal Marine Resource Management, focusing on Strategic Communications and Media. He holds the fundamental belief that effective science communication is the key to igniting popular care for the environment.
