is a source of not only great curiosity,

but great fulfilment.”

Welcome

Hello and thank you for visiting! I’m Rachel, a Marine Biologist and PhD student. This site aims to provide people with an easy accessible introduction to marine conservation based on my own experiences. I wanted this site to give people an honest, down to earth account of the life of a marine biologist whilst helping people learn more about the career I have chosen

On this site you can access interviews I have conducted with academics in the field, to access invaluable advice on pursuing a career in marine conservation. Not interested in a career in marine biology but just want to learn more about the oceans? I also write blogs about various different aspects of marine ecology and conservation to help you develop a passion for the marine world.

If you are interested in what I do myself, you can read about my background and current research interests. You can also subscribe with your email so you never miss a blog post! Or subscribe to my newsletter which will go out every few months.

Want to know more? For all enquiries head to the contact page, or click the links below to access my social media and email.

Thank you and enjoy!
