Heather McConnell is vital to the research conducted at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). She makes sure that their research aquarium and experiments are running smoothly, and that all the animals are healthy.

The projects she’s involved in include those looking at the impact of climate change on urchins and developing new technology for sustainable fish farming.

When she first arrived in Oban, she didn’t know what she would be doing and a government-run internship was the start of her journey at SAMS. Watch this video for her story.
