My name is Natasha Bamford, and I am currently studying Marine Biology at the University of Portsmouth. I have just finished my second year of University and will be completing my
third and final year after finishing the Marine Dynamics internship.
I have always had a keen interest in the ocean and am fascinated by the organisms living within it, particularly marine vertebrates. My love for the ocean started when I was on holiday in the Caribbean and was fortunate enough to go swimming with nurse sharks; my passion only increased from that point on as I gained more knowledge and experiences, such as snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef.
The chance to work with Marine Dynamics Academy and the marine big 5 seemed like an opportunity of a lifetime, and I’m looking forward to working with an incredible team and developing new skills to become a better scientist and gain more experience within the field.
