I decided to slow down and write about what inspired me to dedicate my career to saving our precious ocean environment, spoiler alert! this post is all about seagrass!.

The narrow neck of South Australia, The Coorong.

A place where I have frequented throughout much of my scientific journey is The Coorong National Park which is located in South Australia, Australia.
