:star:What else is going on...?:star:
Well I started my first official job after my PhD, my postdoc! Its very exciting, although I must say its rather strange not being a student anymore after so long being one! (4 years undergrad and 4 years PhD!). Oh well time to be a grown up I suppose! We are getting all set for another field season on the Isle of May with the seals, I'll be out there for 6 weeks once again studying the little beasties, can't wait!

I'm also heading out to Berlin in October to present some of my research at a conference. I've never been to Berlin before so am very excited about that, and it will be great to see all my fellow wildlife endocrinologist friends once again! I've also been given a place to present my research at the big biennial marine mammal conference in december, which is in San Fransisco this time, but as much as I want to go (I've never been to the west coast of the USA) I think it will clash with the seal research season so I will have to decline =( oh well it's still shaping up to be an eventful end to 2015!

While I was away on honeymoon another of my studies on the grey seals in scotland was published which is such great news. It is here if anyone wants to have a read =)…

I have been slowly clawing my way through the several thousand shots I took while in South Africa, am very pleased with some of the pics I got. I will post some soon, for tonight I'm uploading some zoo shots from earlier in 2015 and one sneak peak of a Southern Right Whale in South Africa! Enjoy!

(ugh it seems my membership expired while I was away too, I'll have to save up and get another one my page looks awful now! XD)

Hello everyone :aww:

I'm a zoologist who works on marine mammals, I've just got my PhD in seal behaviour, endocrinology and neurobiology and now I work with dolphins as well as seals. I love wildlife and I hope to spend the rest of my life in the field studying animals just like I am now.

I learnt photography out of nessecity for my job and have taken it up as a hobby because its fun.
