Brinkley Davies

Brinkley Davies grew up living and surfing the great South Australian Bight. Now residing on the Eyre Peninsula, as a Marine Biologist from Flinder's University, she is working on achieving all her dive certifications and is currently researching an Odontoceti (toothed whales) on a field trip off the Big Island in Hawaii, that involves tracking, identifying, tagging and taking biopsies for Cascadia Research Collective.

"I continue to learn more and more about the ocean, the marine life that call it home and the importance of balance between them. As a species, the human race threatens this balance more than anything else before us." Says Brinkley. "Exploration, climate change and a lack of knowledge has brought us face-to-face with an ocean that will never be the same again."

When Brinkley isn't surfing the best kept secret spots of South Oz, you'll find her diving with whales in Tonga or studying turtles in Hawaii.
