Bringing you the latest in marine biological research, education, policy, and much more, the MBA's membership magazine The Marine Biologist is for everyone who loves life in the sea. The latest issue is full of great images and exciting and thought-provoking content. 

The October edition is all about how we do science and our relationship with nature. We proudly feature TV presenter Paul Rose, who also happens to be Expedition Leader for the National Geographic’s thrilling Pristine Seas project. Paul has years of experience leading exploration and making science possible in the most remote locations. Paul describes his role in the Pristine Seas project and how he has used the enforced pause in expedition activity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to reflect on our relationship with nature. He offers a set of values which he hopes will bring young people closer to nature, and help society make better choices for the ocean.

Readers of this edition can look forward to more excellent articles, ranging from our growing understanding of marine fungi, to why we need diversity in marine science, via a fascinating reminder of the crucial role of natural history.
