JCU student intern
Current JCU student, BSc (Marine Biology)

Mina is originally from landlocked Colorado in the United States. After spending some time in Honduras and South Africa, she felt compelled to learn more about the overlap between sustainable fisheries and conservation efforts for sharks and rays. She is currently a second year Bachelor of Marine Science interested in modeling shark populations and movement.

Mina is currently working on website and checklist updates for Shark Search Indo-pacific (the lists for Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef), as well as creating shark & ray fact sheets.
