Sean Williamson

I am a coastal kid from the South Coast of NSW in Australia, a few hours south of Sydney. I moved to Melbourne for my PhD and had the fantastic opportunity to complete my fieldwork all over the North of Australia and in Costa Rica.

I love spending my time in the ocean, through surfing, swimming, snorkelling and diving. I also like to connect with nature by going on bushwalks with friends and camping out at our favourite spots. I am passionate about conservation and ensuring our future generations can experience the wonders of the natural world we inhabit.
