Staff & Board Members
Ceta-Base is managed by a small group of dedicated staff who donate their time and resources to the project. Most of our Board have been with the website since its inception in 2006.
Director | Shannon “CB” Cremeans
Shannon’s interest in the industry beginning as a regular visitor to marine parks in the early 1990’s and then as a marine mammal trainer from 2000-2005. Since 2006 she has managed the Ceta-Base website as its long-time administrator who you may more commonly know as “CB”. Currently she works in the environmental sector with a focus on environmental impact as it applies to protected marine species. She has a background in Anthropolgy (B.A.) and Environmental Science (B.S.) with a focus in Fish & Wildlife Management in the former. email@example.com
Research | Carrie Putnam
Carrie has been a regular contributor and researcher for Ceta Base for several years. Her love of marine mammals began as a small child when she read everything she could about them. She also visited marine parks in Texas and Florida. Although she now lives far from the coast she has never stopped reading or learning about captive marine life. She has kept up with the latest research and networked with both trainers and marine park regulars to feed this passion for information. She has contributed to Ceta Base heavily over the years through gathering and correlating data on marine mammals in captivity. firstname.lastname@example.org
Research | Teresa “Ruka” Micheletti
Teresa became interested in marine mammals in the late 1990’s through a variety of sources including regular visits to SeaWorld. She was also active in various online forums dedicated to the topic. She is an accomplished photographer and has paired together her love of marine mammals with this hobby. Teresa has cared for both domestic and exotic species of animals over the years as well as volunteered extensively. She hopes to share her experiences with others to educate and inspire those who may not have access to the same opportunities. email@example.com
