Fiona Merida

Marine Biologist, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) in Townsville Australia

Marine biologist Fiona Merida is passionate about the Great Barrier Reef — for more than 15 years she’s worked in reef education and marine management. And she loves every minute of it. Fiona grew up in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. She moved to Townsville 13 years ago to study marine biology and, ultimately, fulfil a life-long dream to work on the Great Barrier Reef. Coming from a large temperate city, she loves Townsville’s relaxed tropical lifestyle and being in the hub of coral reef science. Often told she has the best job in the world, Fiona never takes this for granted. Day-to-day Fiona works at the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, the Australian Government agency responsible for managing and protecting one of the world’s most iconic natural areas – the Great Barrier Reef.
