Huge congratulations to the fantastic Professor Rochelle Constantine who has won The Sir Peter Blake Trust environment award for her amazing work with cetaceans. So well deserved!

Congratulations to Associate Professor Rochelle Constantine from the School of Biological Sciences! She has won the inaugural Sir Peter Blake Trust environment award for her work in marine research and conservation.
Associate Professor Constantine's work on a campaign to increase protections for whale populations within the Hauraki Gulf led to slower speeds for large vessels which has dramatically reduced the number of whales injured or killed by ship strike. She has been instrumental in leading a number of initiatives for expanded protection for humpback whales and Māui’s dolphin including revision of guidelines for international dolphin-watch tourism. She was also a strong advocate for the creation of a marine reserve at the Kermadec Islands.
Check out the video below to see some of Rochelle's marine research in action.
