About Me

Hello marine-lovers!

My name is Sophie, I am under-graduate Marine Biology student at James Cook University in tropical North Queensland, Australia. I am currently studying abroad many miles from home at the Bamfield Marine Science Centre in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

The purpose of this blog is to document my time here at the research station, to record my process and discoveries during my Directed Studies  research project and all the other amazing experiences Bamfield has to offer.

So follow me while I explore the new exciting ecosystem, inhabitants and interactions of Vanvcouver Island’s pristine West Coast!

It’s going to be an exciting semester!

Thanks for reading,

Sophie Gordon
