Daphné is back from the Sedna IV

With a passion for the sea and marine biology, Daphné studied ecology at the Université de Sherbrooke. During her studies, she also worked as a nature guide in rabascaw on the Mille-Îles River, an experience that led her to pursue a career as a scientific interpreter. By the age of 18, she had already taken a deep-sea diving course, topped off by a training during a trip to Australia. She then worked at the Saguenay–Saint-Laurent marine park as a nature diver for Explos-Nature. In addition to improving her cold water diving techniques, her scientific dives have allowed her to familiarize herself with the marine species of the St. Lawrence River. Now a scientific interpreter at the Montréal Biodôme, Daphné is continuing her diving training with a view to becoming a monitor. She will also be studying applied communications in the fall. It is with great excitement that she kicks off her experience on the Sedna IV and her participation in this fascinating mission!
