After completing her undergraduate degree in Environmental Science, Wei Xuan worked in the environmental education sector for a year. Wanting to gain more hands-on conservation experience, she left for the Philippines for 3 months where she worked as a volunteer research assistant with a local NGO on their Whale Shark Research project. It was in the Philippines where her interest in elasmobranch conservation and research and Illegal, Unreported, Unregulated (IUU) fishing grew.
