From: Bournemouth, UK
Education/Background: Currently studying Animal behaviour and welfare at University of Plymouth
Reasons for coming: Being lucky enough grow up on the South coast of England I have spent my life either on or in the ocean; this is how my fascination with the ocean began. The sheer expanse and unknown of the ocean is what I am most drawn to and making the unknown known is my goal.
I was first drawn to the BBFS after reading about their current projects and talking to previous volunteers. After hearing about their experiences and the difference the Lab makes I knew that this opportunity would be the best way for me to pursue a career in marine biology. So here I am! I’m looking forward to all I will learn and the invaluable experiences that I will no doubt come away from this place with.
