You must know how cool Marine Biologists are! Well Ornithologists are just as awesome. So lets explore both these amazing scientist careers. We will look at all there is to know about studying NZ birds from binoculars to notebooks, sketching to photography. You'll learn the names of every NZ land bird and where it comes from and why it is so special. We will also dive deep into the ocean with a special look at sea-birds and marine mammals. By the end you will be ready for a life in science. And who knows, one day maybe, like me, you might find yourself hanging off a boat near antarctica about to shoot a whale with a crossbow designed to collect DNA samples. But, more on that and many stories later!!
