UConn Jour­nal­ism major Christie Wang stud­ied abroad in Aus­tralia dur­ing the Fall 2022 semes­ter. She took this squid pho­to at Lady Elliot Island, the south­ern­most coral cay of the Great Bar­ri­er Reef. 

Christie stayed on the island for a week as part of a coral reefs con­ser­va­tion course. She stud­ied marine life, corals, tidal cir­cu­la­tion and ocean acidification.
