Teddy’s interest above and below the ocean lasted a lifetime, not only around Bermuda, but the world. Every day was a day of observation, learning and recording the environment and Bermuda was a perfect platform in the ocean for a person with a sense of adventure and exploration.
‘Teddy Tucker was a master mentor,’ says Dr. Joe MacInnis, a diving physician who studies leadership in high-risk environments. ‘An undersea encyclopedia, who willingly shared his hard-won knowledge. We embraced his intelligence and enthusiasm and made it our own.’
The ‘Teddy Tucker Triangle’ refers to the three main points of focus of Teddy’s work: Shipwrecks, Conservation and Research. It also describes the area around the island where he conducted much of his exploration.
An updated map depicting the specific locations of Teddy’s work is currently being created.
