Who am I?

Marine biologist.




Optimist (sometimes).

Enthusiastic environmental conservationist (all the time).

I’m a British girl living in Australia.

I have an Honours degree in Marine Biology from the University of Aberdeen, and an honorary degree from the University of Life (in process of completion).

I believe Mahatma Gandhi was right when he said: “We must be the change we wish to see in the world”, and I try to live by that.

I am a conservationist, of the type more more likely found on the water than hugging a tree (but it has been known to happen).

I am a realist – I have realised that most people go about their daily lives without really thinking about what’s around them, how everyday things affect their lives (and others’) profoundly, and how even small changes can make huge differences.

Mostly I’m a dreamer. But I have big dreams. And Henry David Thoreau said: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.” So why not?


At the moment I do a bit of blogging for the Conservation Council of WA as a volunteer for Save Our Marine Life.  Head on over and check out the work they do for conservation in WA.

You can also find me on various marine-mammal-related scientific projects, and often in front of a computer analysing Humpback whale fluke photos.


Message me on my blog, why don’t you?

But if you really want to, email me at: seathechangeblog@gmail.com.  It would be great to hear from you.



For more info on the overall philosophy behind this blog, check out my first post, What Is Sea Change? and What Would Terry Pratchett Say?, a bit of a whimsical look at my own blogging existence.

Thanks for dropping by 🙂
