Why am I doing ocean research in the first place?

I have been slack on writing blog posts lately. This is mainly because I have been working hard on my PhD, so hard I feel I have lost passion for my work and have found myself wondering why I am doing ocean research in the first place. 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!.
