This year Gray started teaching on the Tropical and Temperate Marine Ecology course to Australia. Together with Bayden, Stefano and 20 intrepid undergraduates, plus our Demonstrator Deborah, we explored mangrove and rocky shores in temperate Sydney (based at SIMS) and tropical Queensland (based at Orpheus Island, James Cook University). It was a great trip surveying on the shores and reef flats, and seeing some really great snails!
