Virtual Field Trip: Eat Less Plastic - Panelist
Magen Schifiliti, Conservation and Education Director at Trilogy Excursions
After completing her Master’s Degree from the University of Western Australia, Magen moved to Maui to pursue her career. She quickly was snatched up by Trilogy Excursions.
Since 1973, Trilogy has been a leader in sustainability both above and below the water. Their involvement in reef clean-up's and other environmentally responsible practices fostered an environment for their employees to create Blue’aina. Blue’Aina is a campaign that Trilogy has committed to sponsor every month since its inception in January 2010. The objective of the Blue’Aina Campaign is to clean up and maintain Maui’s reef and surrounding lands, educate the community through classes and citizen science, raise money and lend volunteer support for local non-profits.
In 2017 Magen received the “Tour Guide of the Year” award from Hawaii Ecotourism Association. She sits on the Surfrider Foundation Maui board and the Hawaiian Island Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary Foundation board.
