Enquiring Minds is an inspirational documentary series that premiered on Television Sydney (TVS) in 2013. The series aims to help and encourage students in late primary to early secondary school develop their passion and hobbies into a career through higher education.

Sydney��s underwater life is teeming with interesting and unique fish! Kate studies two of our most iconic creatures, the spotted wobbegong and the blue groper, using remote tracking techniques to monitor the fish 24/7 as they move along the NSW coastline. She will talk about her research and how it can be used to help conserve the habitats of these amazing creatures.

Bachelor of Science (Marine Biology), Postgraduate Certificate in Wildlife Conservation and PhD Environmental Science.
Kate is a research scientist working on marine projects all over Australia involving a wide range of sharks and fish. Her PhD research on wobbegong sharks investigated where sharks swim and how long they spend in marine protected areas. She knows that by conserving our marine parks we are helping protect some of Sydney��s most interesting creatures.
