My daughter on tv tonight

My 15 year was on tv tonight in regards to her contributions to marine science, in part of the interview you can see some footage on her computer she filmed of brydes whales on Monday.

She's also been asked to be an ambassador for youth marine science with an invite to Macquarie island next year onboard the new icebreaker research vessel.

Jon, let me to be the first on this forum to congratulate you and your daughter.

Your daughter definitely would make a good scientist; personally I would recommend she take some molecular biology classes even if they are confined to a lab. There is always time to enjoy the outdoors and she would gain a very deep understanding of nature.

Either way, stellar kid you got there.

Thanks for the comments.

Water temps in my area which is about 5 hrs south of Sydney can reach 24'c in the summer and down to 13'c winter, we use 3mm wetsuits all year round. The further north we go the hotter the water temp gets and further south the colder.

The fish she has been recording are mostly tropical species that are adapting to survive our cooler water up to 3000 km outside their normal range.

I also dived most of my life back in the UK before moving out here but never had the opportunity to own such quality wetsuits, Yamamoto rubber is actually made from limestone and blows away other suits in terms of warmth and comfort.

That's so Brilliant, but what tops it off is that she still thinks her Dad is cool enough to be "best Buds" with !
You should be so proud of yourself, as well as her

I remember reading one of your post where your daughter was diving for the (Green) lobsters & then she gave them away to elderly people who were not lucky enough to be able to get them anymore - always thought that's such a cool nice thing to do
