My name’s Lucas and I’m currently a student at Bangor University. I’ve completed my first three years of study and am now embarking on an internship abroad. I began Our Open Oceans as a means to share a glimpse of the fascinating world that makes up the majority of our planet with the general public as well as collaborate with others who share my passion. This site is an opportunity for me to discover and share as well as raise awareness of the threats our oceans face.

I’m Taylor, I undertook my undergraduate degree in Marine Biology at Bangor University and am hoping to return soon to complete a masters degree. I have always been fascinated with the oceans from a young age, with a particular interest in sharks and turtles. Studying marine biology has alerted me to the threats that face our oceans and I hope I can help make others more aware with my contributions to Our Open Oceans. I also hope to share some lesser known areas of marine biology.
