Meet Jacinta Shackleton, an Australian marine biologist, Master Reef Guide, photographer, and videographer who shares a bloodline with the famous Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. With a deep-seated passion for adventure, Jacinta spends her days delving into the captivating world beneath the ocean's surface, while also dedicating herself to educating others on how they can help protect it. Working on Lady Elliot Island, the southernmost island in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, Jacinta is fully immersed in the Reef's ecosystem and is committed to teaching people about its inhabitants. This beautiful coral cay spans 50 football fields and is home to over 1,200 marine species, including whales, manta rays, turtles, dolphins, and corals, as well as the second-highest number of breeding seabirds on the Great Barrier Reef. Through education, Jacinta believes that individuals can make a genuine impact on the Reef's preservation.
