Mason Sullivan (Research Assistant)

I graduated with a double major in Marine Science and Environmental Science from Murdoch University in Western Australia in 2016. I then left immediately for Mexico where I spent 6 months conducting coral reef and fish surveys on the Meso-American barrier reef whilst also completing my Divemaster Internship. After returning to Western Australia I spent the next 3 years in Shark Bay at Ocean Park Aquarium as resident Marine Scientist, Tour Guide and Divemaster. This gave me the skills to care for a range of marine life in open and closed aquaria systems whilst also fostering invaluable skills to create or fix almost anything out of the very limited equipment typically found in a small country town!
