​David Chuchuca

Assistant Director NYC H2O.

Is a former microbiologist turned photographer & educator who works to communicate scientific research with the public. At H2O, David directly interacts with our communities in fun and memorable ways that inspire environmental stewardship and communion within NYC green spaces. Before the pandemic, David exposed city students to local water infrastructure and ecology sites around the five boroughs. Since the move to virtual learning, he has helped organize an online platform (NYC H2O Hub) to continue educating students about their surrounding environment and their connection to urban ecosystems. He draws inspiration from the curiosity of our young citizen scientists.
