Meet our Interns


Harvey Merrifield

Sea Synergy Intern

I am a 3 rd year student at the University of Plymouth studying Ocean science and Marine Conservation. Through sea-kayaking expeditions, I gained my passion for Ocean Science and have explored this further at university.

Having raced internationally in Kayak Slalom and completed endurance races such as the Devises to Westminster and the Liffey Decent, I have used these skills to coach young athletes and work as an outdoor instructor in previous roles.

Surfing and hiking are some of my other hobbies which have taken me around the UK and Ireland, Kerry being one of my favourite places to explore! This placement
opportunity to work with Sea Synergy has allowed me to combine both my interest in marine conservation and my love for outdoor adventure.

My name is Leah Moynihan. I am a third year Ecology and Environmental Biology student in UCC. I love all things nature, and my favourite thing to do is go for a walk in the woodlands and observe the incredible local animals that pass by.
