Kia Ora! My name is Wednesday and welcome to my first blog post! I am a marine science student from the University of Auckland studying the foraging behaviours of seabirds and cetaceans! I can’t wait to share my masters journey, outreach, volunteering and adventures along the way with you!
Over the next few months I hope to blog and blog my journey as a postgraduate student as well as the exciting things I get up to along the way! In January I will be going to Dunedin and the Catlins for 3 weeks working on sealion (rāpoka) and yellow-eyed penguins (hoiho) management and monitoring programmes! This BLAKE ambassadorship is an awesome opportunity to learn more about these amazing critters, develop my hands on science skills and share my experiences with others!
Why am I doing this blog? Firstly, I am super duper excited about this masters project and BLAKE ambassadorship and I wanted to make a platform to share my adventures, findings and the critters I meet with others. I am honoured to be selected for this Ambassadorship and extremely blessed to be working with Rochelle Constantine on my MSc research. As part of my career as a marine scientist I would love to be a science communicator and share the wonders of the oceans with others!
Here on my blog you will find photography, vlogs, info graphics and all the other exciting things I get up to along the way! I want to evolve this blog in a way that it helps me connect with others and share my marine-y things with others!
I can’t wait to share my experiences with you all and thank you for joining me on this exciting chapter of my life!
Sea you soon, Wednesday <><
