WAM’s marine biologist Nerida Wilson

Nerida’s nudibranchs, sea dragons and siphonophores, ABC News, 18 July 2022

Dr Nerida Wilson is a marine molecular biologist at the Western Australian Museum.

She spends a lot of her time getting acquainted with the mysterious things lurking in the dark depths of the oceans.

From nudibranchs, to sea dragons and a UFO-looking spiral that’s around 150 feet long, Nerida doesn’t need to know why these weird and wonderful creatures exist, that they made it here in the first place is enough.
