38. Sailing with the Sustainable Biologist - Hanna Partoft
GET YOUR WATER WOMEN STICKERS AT WATERWOMENPODCAST.CA/SHOP!!!  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.

Born and raised in a fishing village on the coast of Quintana Roo, Mexico, Tamara grew up in the water and experienced nature since a very young age and has been in the water all my life! Tamara started teaching diving in 2014, became aware that most divers, including guides and instructors, didn't know much about the ocean and its inhabitants and there was a huge lack in connecting people to the environment they visit when diving, so I went on to found my first scuba business MANATUS, a dive school based on using scuba to teach environmental science and conservation. She became interested in plastic pollution a few years back after a tragic visit to the reef where a massive arrival of plastic happened. That was the start of her journey into documentary film, without knowing it, That's where I met Sylvia Johnson and were we first talked about the Mermaids project.
