Sophie is a Seychellois fourth year undergraduate student studying Marine Biology. She would like to help increase public appreciation of marine wildlife in her country and has a love for sharks and rays, in particular. She has helped manage a coral restoration program, which included transplanting nursery-reared corals to degraded reefs around the main island of Seychelles. She hopes to have an even greater influence on coral reef conservation after her studies.
I am a fourth year Biology student with an interest in conserving biodiversity in marine and terrestrial habitats around the world. I am looking forward to studying coral growth as part of my dissertation and seeing how 3D modelling of coral reefs can give us a better understanding of their complexity. This will allow us to better answer ecological questions and may improve management strategies in reef ecosystems.
