Heather Maginn

Heather has over ten years experience within the education industry and is excited to be back in the marine and conservation field after a brief career change into the travel industry.  She graduated from La Trobe University with a Bachelor and Animal and Veterinary Science with Honours in Marine Biology.  She then completed her Graduate Diploma of Education at Monash University, specialising in biology and general science.
Heather is a keen scuba diver, with more than 300 dives within Australia, Indonesia, Thailand and Cuba over the last 20 years.  She has also been a presenter on the marine show Out of the Blue on 3CR community radio for the last six years.  She loved chatting to people about the environment, overseas adventures and simple ways we can all reduce our impact on our incredible planet Earth.

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located.

We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
