Stefan Moss

Book A DEL Speaker

Stefan Moss is an environmental scientist and educator. As a scientist, he has worked in the public sector on UN-related projects in the Caribbean including the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, most recently assisting in the completion of the Bahamas National Implementation Plan. In the private sector, he parlayed his experience in ecotoxicology to work on environmental remediation projects in the United States and The Bahamas for Fortune 500 companies such as Exxon Mobil and BP.

Moss is a former adjunct professor of Environmental Science at Georgia State University, and currently serves as a K-12 Science Educator in Georgia. In 2014 he launched The Moss Group which provides Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) mentorship and training through a stewardship lens for public and private organizations including the U.S National Park Service, U.S Forest Service, Greening Youth Foundation, and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and Biology from Lee University, and a Master's degree in Environmental Science from the University of Tennessee.

In 2018 Stefan created the Saltwater Underground Railroad Experience, a Google Earth project that retraces the steps of freedom seekers in the southeastern states in the early 19th century. The project follows their journey from slave plantations, coastal fortifications and maroon communities to The Bahama Islands, where they developed sustainable communities that still exist today. Inspiration for the project came from visits to numerous national and state parks in the southeast, where stories of an "Underground Railroad" going south to Florida and beyond were told. Utilizing interactive maps, peer reviewed articles and newspaper clippings, the project dives headfirst into Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and sustainable communities, but more importantly, the stories of the brave men and women who risked their lives in search of freedom.
