Irene Middleton is the first to take the spotlight and she is just awesome in so many ways. Not only is she an accomplished diver but she’s also an incredible photographer and marine scientist! She runs a really cool facebook page called What’s That Fish NZ? It’s well worth following if you’re interested in all the weird creatures that pop up around New Zealand’s coasts. She will help you identify any strange things you find yourself and loves to see what people come across out there.
We recently did a short interview with Irene about her work, her inspirations and her love of the ocean. Have a look at the video (it’s interactive—you get to pause it based on your own reading speed…) to see some of her photographs and learn about her fascinating scuba career!
The team here at Yukon Dive are always excited to have Irene on the boat with us and are so grateful for her support and enthusiasm. She’s a wonderful role model for anyone interested in following their passion for marine life!
Stay tuned for the next two episodes and let us know in the YouTube comments which ocean ladies inspire you!
