    38. Sailing with the Sustainable Biologist - Hanna Partoft

    Hanna found her passion for the marine environment back in 2012 when she was working as a deckhand on board the tall ship Soren Larsen for its 7-month voyage of the South Pacific Ocean. Sailing from Sydney (Australia) she went to New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, before we returned to Sydney. Nature dictated the days on board, and her daily encounters with marine animals, including dolphins, flying fish, albatrosses, and pilot whales helped her learn the powers of the ocean. We sailed through storms that tore our sails, through sea-states with 4-meter high waves, and we climbed the mast in pouring rain.
    Hanna's time in Australia and the South Pacific led her to start a degree in Animal Biology at Stirling University in Scotland. Since this Hanna has started a degree in qualitative analysis and statistics.
    Hanna currently runs the account Sustainable Biologist on Instagram where she shares  knowledge of conservation and the marine environment in hopes to raise awareness of issues related to both marine and terrestrial animals.
