Marine Biology Educator / Ph.D Student
My name is Morgan Black. I was born in central BC, and have been a grateful resident of Vancouver Island since I was two years old. I was a naturalist from a very young age and developed a strong connection to the land and sea. I am now a PhD student studying Marine Ecology at the University of Victoria in the Juanes lab (https://juaneslab.weebly.com/) looking at the fish, crabs, and shrimps found on First Nations walled clam gardens ( http://www.seagoing.ca/research/). In gratitude and reciprocity, I support the Living Lab Project because more ways of knowing and ‘seeing’ the world need to be recognized and respected. I feel our future will much improve when this becomes commonplace.
