16-y/o, amateur researcher from Victoria, Australia, particularly focused on marine ecology and conservation, plus malacology.
Fascinated by nature since infancy, I am drawn to the intricacies in all aspects of the natural world and seek to better understand it, no matter our human limitations.

Expertise on iNaturalist is identifying molluscs, echinoids and brachiopods from Australia. Starting to ID kelps and seagrasses.
Need something ID'd? Just @ me!
