Recently graduated Marine Biologist, Frida Elba has had a life long fascination with marine life, particularly whales. Before completing her qualifications, Frida spent several years working for wildlife orientated boat tour companies in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Norway. Her career goal is to run marine life appreciation tours for aspiring marine biologists and volunteer animal lovers in the same vein as volunteer digs for archeology enthusiasts. She hopes this will have an effect on both the animals she is working to conserve and the people who give their time.
