Huw – Marine biologist

Huw is a marine biologist working for the British Antarctic Survey. His day job is split between expeditions to Antarctica to find and study the animals living at the bottom of the sea, and laboratory work in the purpose-built labs on the outskirts of Cambridge in the UK.

One of the highlights of the job for Huw is waking up on the research vessel when out in Antarctica and seeing the view outside his window with the glaciers and icebergs, not to mention the seals, penguins and whales that may be swimming past!

In this video, Huw talks about the skills required for this role, as well as the new technologies that will be coming in the future to aid his job. Could you follow in his footsteps?
