Barry Wray is the Executive Director of the Florida Keys Environmental Coalition, which he formed in 2010 in response to threats for the Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill to the ecosystems and livelihood of the FL Keys. Barry, together with a team of Keys wide activists, who range from globally recognized PhDs and Medical Doctors to Moms and Realtors, has helped lead the defense of the Keys from the premature release of Genetically Modified (GM) Mosquitoes until they are proven safe, championed changes to aerial chemical dispersal to prevent contamination to potable water system and pioneered a novel engineered approach to improving near shore water quality in the Keys using indigenous filter feeder species in engineered habitats. Barry has a Master’s of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts along with years of extensive project management and global engineering achievements for companies like GE and Ericsson.
