We are pleased to announced that Dr Ana Sequeira received the Early Career Award at the 7th conference of the International Biologging Society, for having "pioneered the development of global distribution models for marine megafauna species. She was a key plyer in bringing together a long collaborative group of scientists to share their biologging data and to identify global threats that affect these animals. Dr Sequeira has also worked to provide guidance for how we can minimise impact on animals while still making sure the sample sizes are statistically significant for research".
Adrianne Hortle has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an interdisciplinary project within the Integrated Coastal Analyses and Sensor Technology (ICoAST) and Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) projects linking remote sensing seagrass mapping and turtle observations in Shark Bay (Gathaagudu), Western Australia.

Dr Ana Sequeira has joined the dissertation committee for Ms Arina Favilla who is doing her PhD degree at the University of California, Santa Cruz (USCS).
Our Master’s student Jessica Pearce participated in the recent video abstract competition held by Pacific Bioscience (PacBio) , on behalf of UWA Oceans Institute and DNA Zoo Australia.
Michael Taylor has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an exciting project investigating movement, interactions, and habitat use of Shark Bay’s iconic megafauna.
Today, Wednesday 22nd July at 6 pm AWST (11 am GMT), Ana and Nuno Queiroz (CIBIO, Universidade do Porto) with be having a live chat about their global collaborations to unravel marine megafauna movement.
Our new research on ‘Future Distribution of Suitable Habitat for Pelagic Sharks in Australia Under Climate Change Models’ has just been published in Frontiers in Marine Science. In this study led by Charlotte Birkmanis, we predicted where pelagic sharks are likely to occur in Australian waters under future sea temperatures.
4-May-2020 (written by Jessica Pearce) Jessica Pearce has joined the Sequeira Lab to do her Masters Degree investigating shark evolution using novel genomic technologies in collaboration with Dr Matthew Fraser from UWA Oceans Institute and Assoc Prof Parwinder Kaur, Director of DNA Zoo Australia. Jessica will be sequencing the tiger shark genome and conducting a …
