Hello fellow listers!

We are two Canadian Marine Biologists (MSc.) looking for work 
opportunities, ideally in the same area. We hope to tap into the 
network of the Coral List to get to opportunities that are seldom 
advertised. We recently returned to Canada after a 1-year trip around 
the world, and are currently situated in Vancouver, Canada but will 
relocate to wherever there is an interesting opportunity for work. We 
are most interested in positions with a large field component (e.g., 
consultant, researcher, field project manager, naturalist, fishery 
observer), however we will gladly consider any opportunities 
presented to us. Here is a brief summary of our qualifications:
