Volunteer Details: 


My name is Julie Melrose. I am 30 years old and I am a qualified PADI Divemaster, FII Level 2 Freediver, and environmental lawyer living in Point Lookout, Nth Straddie. 

I have previously worked as National Campaigns Manager for the Wilderness Society and as an international consultant on various coral reef and marine/fisheries governance projects including for the United Nations Environment Program and UOW's Australian Centre for Ocean Resources and Security. 

I am taking a year off full time work this year to train for freediving and I am interested in volunteering or working on the island while I am here. My family lives on the island. My partner Sam is an outdoor education teacher and diver and also interested. 

We are more interested in any practical opportunities like diving or freediving research help, but I would be happy to help with any other projects too. I am interested in doing a Phd in the near future on marine and coral reef governance and policy.
