Ray Belmonte

Outreach Assistant, Western Canada

Originally from the Philippines with an undergraduate degree in chemistry, Raymond hung up his lab coat for business cards and a name badge, and a career in environmental sustainability. Since arriving in Vancouver, he has been involved in research, community engagement and project coordination in the city, eventually making his way to the Ocean Wise Conservation Organization.

While there, he has worn many hats; from running events for the Vancouver Aquarium’s members, to researching Environmental Management best practices. Now, Raymond works to grow the city’s community of sustainable seafood diners as the Sustainable Seafood team’s Outreach Assistant in BC.

When not at work or studying for his Masters in Environment and Management at Royal Roads University, Ray can be found volunteering for sustainability and clean tech events in the city. He also a foodie by all accounts (though ironically can’t have crustaceans), an unabashed science nerd, and fan of all things green.

Favorite animal: dumbo octopus
