Brian Benito Jr. has been a CSI Director for four years. As CSI's liaison to the World Cetacean Alliance he serves on several committees and has a focus on captive orcas. Brian and CSI came together through "Leaders on Board", a Hartford, Connecticut initiative that links charitable organizations and young professionals. His passion for environmental advocacy and animal welfare were a natural match with CSI's 40 years of cetacean work. He holds Masters of Science degrees in Environmental Education and Management. As an environmental scientist working within the utility industry, Brian specializes in environmental compliance, large linear projects, and the Clean Water Act.
