Jenny Greenland has a Bachelors of Science with Honours from La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia which she completed in 1990. From there she moved to Brisbane, Queensland where she became involved in the marine turtle research doing contract work for Dr Colin Limpus. She did significant contract work for the Queensland Museum, the Department of Primary Industry and the Department of Environment and Resource Management.
For the last ten years she has worked as the stranding database coordinator for DERM. The job involved collating stranding data for all marine cetaceans, sirenians & turtles and producing annual reports. She currently resides in the Cook Islands with her family and has been an integral part of the Whale Research project. Jenny's excellent scientific background has been a wonderful addition to Cook Islands Whale Research.
