Ana Sequeira receives the Early Career Award from the International Biologging Society!
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".
