An interview with Micheline Jenner, M.Sc. conducted by Willoh S.Weiland.

In Perth, while working with the Centre for Marine Technology at Curtin University, we were invited to dinner at The Centre for Whale Research (Western Australia) Inc., a nonprofit research institute that conducts scientific research into the Order Cetacea, (whales, dolphins, porpoises). The centre is located on a large dark green ocean going vessel, with an ice‐breaker prow, the RV Whale Song (above). This vessel allows the Centre’s scientists to explore areas never before examined for cetaceans

Docked in Fremantle in preparation for an upcoming research trip to Antarctica, the centre is a mobile and independent body of affiliated researchers led by marine biologists Curt and Micheline Jenner. They were our hosts for the evening along with their erudite and

capable children Micah and Tasmin who cooked fresh squid and made origami while we raved out about how much art and science have in common and the life lived remotely.
