I was an intern for Sharklab-Malta from June 2018 – March 2019, and it was the best experience! I spent most of my time in the water carrying out snorkel surveys for the Fly with Bull Rays Project. Prior to becoming an intern, I had never seen a Bull Ray and was completely taken aback the first time I saw one gliding along the seafloor at Golden Bay, they are truly beautiful creatures that deserve to be protected. I remember my first snorkel survey for the FWBR Project at Marsaxlokk with Silvio and the other Cardiff University interns, it was the start of our Bull Ray journey! We all became obsessed with finding the rays and desperately wanted to grow our knowledge on them. I also am known for getting extremely sunburnt ever since that first snorkel… It was an experience I will never forget and am so grateful that I got to be part of the Fly with Bull Rays Project.
