"The work I do with NIWA, monitoring, recording and manipulating data and communicating possible recommendations will all be vital in my Masters, and doing these things with NIWA will give me a massive leg-up both in terms of skills and confidence. This will really be the beginning of what I hope is a life-long career in marine science." Joshua Brian
