Crazy Crustacean Queen

We all know the term ‘Crazy Cat Lady’, but have we heard of the Crazy Crustacean Queen? My self-appointed title has been brought to the foreground as the amount of invertebrates on the Caymanian reefs has blown me away. Invertebrates include any animal without a backbone, from wriggly worms to the flamboyant octopus and make [...]

diveLIVE Diaries – Life as a diveLIVE presenter

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a marine biologist. Well, that’s not technically true.
