Your Presenter

About your Presenter
Rachel Parry

Rachel loves the ocean and tries to spend every spare moment near it, on it or under it! Her passion for marine life has seen her work on conservation projects in far flung corners of the world.

Rachel’s favourite animals are corals and sharks and she has worked in many areas including coral disease monitoring, coral reef surveying, whale shark monitoring, invasive species management and coral nurseries. Rachel is also a dive instructor and spends her weekends diving on North Stradbroke Island.

“I have a firm belief that education is the key to conservation. As the saying goes: we conserve only what we love, we love only what we understand, and we understand only what we are taught. Science needs to be more accessible to the general public. By educating and creating understanding and love for the ocean we can instil a sense of environmental responsibility and create ocean ambassadors to help to conserve our precious marine eco-systems.”
