Who are your hosts?
Lexi is a Volunteer & Training Coordinator, who is passionate about conservation, science, public engagement, and mental health.
She has a focus to continuously build on her knowledge and experience through education & volunteer opportunities. Lexi has participated in projects involving bats, wolves, bears, turtles, coral reefs & clownfish - so there is no favouritism between marine or terrestrial. Through her work she believes the best way to engage people is to encourage those in the know to share their passion.
A fourth-year marine ecology PhD student, ocean advocate & oyster lover.
Hannah’s research focuses on the European flat oyster & how carbon can be transported from seawater to seabed with the help of these animals.
Essentially, she spends an awful lot of time looking at shells & mud! As a commercial scuba diver, Hannah is also helping to restore the native oyster in northern Scotland. She has participated in research projects on other shellfish, turtles & bats to name a few & loves a cold Scottish sea swim!
