Dr Nathan Robinson is a Marine Biologist and Science Communicator whose research focuses on using novel camera technologies to answer important ecological questions while simultaneously engaging global audiences in marine conservation. His research typically focuses on sea turtles or large deep-sea squid but he also has experience working with sharks, crocodiles, crustaceans, and surfing sea snails! During his career, he has been at the center of several viral videos including removing both a plastic straw and a plastic fork from the nostrils of endangered sea turtles. He also filmed the first footage of a giant squid in US waters. Nathan received a Masters of Marine Biology at Southampton University and was nominated as the highest achieving student of his graduating class. Next, he moved to Purdue University where we received a Ph.D in Biological Sciences. After completing his formal education, Nathan accepted a job running the Goldring-Gund Marine Biology Station in Costa Rica before moving to The Bahamas as the Director of the Cape Eleuthera Institute. He currently works in Spain for the Fundación Oceanogràfic and the Institut de Ciencies del Mar.
Nathan will be on Saba the first week of October--stay tuned for more details about his presentation and field project.
