Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to our November edition of SIMS NEWS. This month we're featuring research on upside-down jellyfish (yes this is a thing!), welcoming a new Development Manager to the SIMS team, and learning more about indigenous PhD candidate Mitch Gibbs and his journey through university.

There are still some seats available for our upcoming lecture by Dr Rachael Gray who will be presenting her fascinating research on Australian sea lions - make sure to click the link below to secure your spot!

Saving our Sea Lions
Dr Rachael Gray
Public Lecture 6th November 2019, 6.45PM

Dr Rachael Gray and her team from the University of Sydney have established a world-first treatment trial monitoring sea lion pup health and mortality in the Seal Bay colony on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Join us for this fascinating public lecture by Rachael and understand why our Australian sea lion numbers are decreasing and what we can do to help them recover

PhD candidate Mitch Gibbs does much of his work in the Ian Potter Research aquarium here at SIMS. This video was produced by the University of Sydney and speaks to Mitch's journey as an indigenous student, his research, his inspirations and his vision.

Upside-down Jellyfish

Researchers from the University of Sydney have been busy in SIMS' Ian Potter Aquarium simulating the natural decrease in Lake Macquarie’s seasonal water temperature  in order to assess the physiological response of the upside down jellyfish. This research will have  significant implications regarding the influence the upside-down jellyfish may have on the Lake Macquarie ecosystem and their ability to spread to other locations.
Welcome to Steph Morison, our new Development Manager

SIMS is pleased to introduce Steph Morison who has recently joined us to further develop our strategic philanthropy program and to support our community of volunteers.
