This evening was almost perfectly calm and meant for a perfect island send off for Stefan. Stefan Brager, the former research director at the whale museum, is a friend and colleague who also tells me on no uncertain terms to finish my thesis! We will all miss Stefan here on San Juan but I hope that he continues to be that little voice in the back of head reminding me that I need to hurry up and get this thesis finished so that I can move on to the next the exciting adventure!!
I am a wildlife biologist and I have a fascination with the marine environment and particularly whales. I work to understand our impacts on the marine environment and how our work as scientists can facilitate better management that aims to reduce the effects of human activities on marine species and their environment.
