The Sequeira Lab is excited to have recently returned from our second field trip to Shark Bay, tagging green and loggerhead turtles!
The SequeiraLab is happy to announce that the research paper 'Water temperature is a key driver of horizontal and vertical movements of an ocean giant, the whale shark (Rhincondon typus)' led by Lucy Arrowsmith and co-authored by Ana Sequeira, Charitha Pattiaratchi and Mark Meekan, has just been published in the journal Marine Ecology Progress Series!
We are pleased to announced that Dr Ana Sequeira received the Early Career Award at the 7th conference of the International Biologging Society, for having "pioneered the development of global distribution models for marine megafauna species. She was a key plyer in bringing together a long collaborative group of scientists to share their biologging data and to identify global threats that affect these animals. Dr Sequeira has also worked to provide guidance for how we can minimise impact on animals while still making sure the sample sizes are statistically significant for research".
Adrianne Hortle has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an interdisciplinary project within the Integrated Coastal Analyses and Sensor Technology (ICoAST) and Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) projects linking remote sensing seagrass mapping and turtle observations in Shark Bay (Gathaagudu), Western Australia.
The movement patterns of sympatric apex predatory sharks has just been published in Ecography: 'Comprehensive analytical approaches reveal species-specific search strategies in sympatric apex predatory sharks'.
Ben D’Antonio has joined the Sequeira lab to undertake an exciting project investigating the vertical and horizontal movements of apex predators at two World Heritage sites in Western Australia. Ben’s PhD work will be embedded in the Gathaagudu Animal Tracking (GAT) ...
We are happy to announce that research led by Lucy Arrowsmith has been published in Frontiers in Marine Science! This research, ‘First Insights into the Horizontal Movements of Whale Sharks (Rhincodon typus) in the Northern Arabian Sea,’ shows the first data of whale sharks tagged in the northern Arabian Sea off the western coast of the Indian state of Gujarat.
The Sequeira Lab is excited to announce that we have recently returned from our first field trip to Shark Bay or “Gathaagudu” as it is called by the Malgana Peoples, the traditional owners of this region in Western Australia.
Sequeira lab is currently advertising two fantastic opportunities for Research Associate positions with our lab! We are looking for curious, enthusiastic and self-driven researchers looking to further develop their quantitative skills and expand their horizons through marine animal movement ecology. One position focuses strongly on the analyses of large datasets, computer modelling, and advanced statistics. The other also involves coordinating remote field expeditions to remote areas of the West Australian coastline (Shark Bay) to tag turtles, dugong and sharks.
