Turning the Tide Newsletter – Summer 2024
Hello Emma & Tish
Emma and Elisha “Tish” have both volunteered with AMCS for more than a year, generously finding time in their busy schedules to support marine conservation.
Emma is studying a dual degree in Biomedical Science and Science, majoring in Marine Biology, and Tish is studying a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Marine Biology and minoring in Zoology. Credentials attesting to a deep love of our oceans and making a difference.
From a young age Emma visited Ningaloo Reef on family roadtrips, and highlights snorkelling Coral Bay as pivotal in her decision to study marine science.
“I love that there is this crazy alien world that we could never survive in, right there on our coastlines,” Tish explains. “There is so much unique and incredible life down there in an environment that is completely inhospitable to us, and I find that fascinating.”
We sincerely thank Emma and Tish, and volunteers everywhere, for their generosity, commitment and support – you are absolutely critical to change-making work.
A few reasons why you may like to volunteer:
