The Marine Diaries: The Hidden Treasures of British Seas

Hi! I recently adapted my post on Becoming a British Diver for The Marine Diaries blog, where it is now titled The Hidden Treasures of Britain’s Seas. It’s a much better incarnation of the original post, and I’d love it if you’d go go check it out! They’ve also got loads of other great posts on diving and marine biology careers, including some really cool interviews.

The Rarest Shark In The World: The Ganges River Shark

Hi all! A quick note to say you should head over to The Conservation Project International’s website, both to check out the really cool work they are trying to do and to read my article on the Ganges river shark, the rarest shark in the world.

I’m going to be working with TCPI to produce a series of blog posts on marine (if you’ve spotted that river sharks aren’t marine, yes, shhh) endangered species that need some more love and attention from conservationists (and everyone else).

Next up, the Calico grouper – watch this space!

In June 2015 I joined the Ionian Dolphin Project (IDP) run by the Tethys Research Institute for a week. This is a long-term research project on the bottlenose dolphins in the Ambravikos Gulf and other dolphins and marine mammals in the waters around Kalamos.
