The Marine Discoveries team is made up of highly trained marine biologists (postgraduates) who research and communicate about the GBR through their work on a daily basis. All full-time staff are also Master Reef Guides. With their diverse knowledge, expertise, and experience in storytelling they are perfectly suited to speak at your next event.

Working as a marine biologist since 2012, Abby has a wide experience based on researching coral reefs around the world. Her communication skills are informative and audience appropriate, she can adapt information to suit any audience and its needs. Through her passion and experience, she can bring any topic to life.
Marine Discoveries are based in Cairns, the gateway of the Great Barrier Reef in tropical Far North Queensland. They travel all over Australia, neighbouring regions and internationally raising awareness of, advocating for, and speaking about the need for Marine conservation, preservation and the effects of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef.
Marine Discovery presenters like nothing more than to be a part of things in person, meeting and talking with attendee's and other speakers. They are just as much at home in-front of large audiences as with smaller groups or simply mingling at more specialised events.
If time, location or travel is a factor, Marine Discoveries are more than happy to make an appearance via video-link or voice-call providing the same level of audience engagement as if they were there in person.
With the amazing backdrop of Far North Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef, Marine Discoveries can produce and commentate on a number of pre-prepared topics for later use within your organisation for educational and conservation purposes.
