I've gone the extra mile to ensure that you have access to the most comprehensive visual and informative resource on these remarkable species.

The Passion of Algae

This guide represents years of dedication and a deep-seated passion for algae. It's a culmination of my travels to remote corners of Victoria, where I've collected and observed seaweeds in their natural habitats. Through countless hours spent underwater and in the lab, my goal has been to shed light on the often-overlooked beauty and significance of these underwater organisms.

Free Access for All

One of my core principles is that knowledge should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. That's why I am delighted to offer this field guide completely free of charge. My intention is to contribute to scientific understanding and appreciation of Victoria's marine flora, ensuring that anyone with an interest can explore and learn.
