Prior to ABC, Marci worked for The Nature Conservancy (TNC) for 18 years, leading conservation and communications programs across Latin America and the Caribbean, where she supported corporate and humanitarian partnerships to advance collaborative initiatives to achieve the protection and restoration of important habitats for the benefit of both nature and local communities, especially given the adverse impacts of climate change in the region.
