sally wildingSally is studying Conservation, Biology and Ecology from 2015 to 2017, at the University of Exeter. Wildlife has always played a pivotal role in her life and she has a particular passion in marine life and systems. In 2013 she achieved an advanced PADI scuba-diving license in Mafia Island where she also contributed to a Marine Conservation and Diving Project and gained a Tropical Habitat Conservation qualification. In 2014 she became an on call member of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR), whereby she attends to stranded cetaceans and pinnipeds and was provided with detailed information on the anatomy, respiration, echolocation, feeding and sexual reproduction of these marine mammals. During 2016 she completed a course with the UK based ORCA project to become a MMO (marine mammal observer), in order to collect live data for research on cetology within British waters.
In the summer of 2016 she became a research assistant at the IDP (Ischia Dolphin Project), in order to enhance her knowledge and contribute to, live research on pelagic biodiversity and marine systems within the Mediterranean Sea.
