Amy has recently finished her undergraduate degree at Murdoch University and is currently completing her Honours at Curtin University. Her study is on the ecophysiology of mesophotic corals in the Dampier Archipelago and hopes to one day make a significant contribution to the conservation of coral reefs. Amy’s passion for conservation and sustainability grew as she worked in various positions across the globe, including elephant rehabilitation in Thailand, community agriculture in Kenya, and marine conservation in the Philippines. In summer 2020, she spent time in Indonesia studying anthropogenic effects on reef health and various coral restoration methods which inspired her to specialise in Scleractinia, or hard coral. Amy loves to dive and explore the underwater world. She also enjoys the unique terrestrial wildlife and flora of WA and currently works as an ecologist guide for the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.
