Dear <<First Name>>,

It's World Oceans Day so we thought you would enjoy a special edition of SIMS News! 
Professor Martina Doblin, appointed as the new SIMS CEO and Director

SIMS' inaugural CEO, Professor Peter Steinberg has stepped down after 13 years with SIMS.  Peter played an exceptional role in nurturing and leading SIMS from its beginnings as a single lab and aquarium to its current status as one of Australia’s nationally significant marine science institutes.
We extend a very warm welcome to Martina, who has a long association with SIMS and as a highly respected and experienced scientist is eminently suited to the role.

SIMS welcomes nine new 'Seahorse Hotels' and their special guests to Chowder Bay 

In a landmark event a group of aquarium bred White’s Seahorses were released at Chowder Bay as part of a critical conservation project aimed at helping recover this iconic endangered species. The White’s Seahorses – affectionately known as the Sydney Seahorse - were part of a recovery project led by SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium in collaboration with the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Fisheries and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
