Tracy Medway studied Marine Biology at the James Cook University in Townsville, Australia before moving to Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the world's biologically richest and most threatened marine ecosystems. Medway spent there 8 years working in marine tourism. She got first-hand knowledge on the ocean and its creatures. From 1996 to 2002 she extensively explored remote regions of the GBR.

Medway has been involved in many research programs such as the ones on Dwarf Minke Whales, White Tip Reef Sharks, Bio-erosion, water quality monitoring and nautilus. Medway is a specialist of the many ecosystems of the GBR. Her special interests are in remote areas, unusual invertebrates, and hammerheads.

Through her work on the Great Barrier Reef, Medway has witnessed the dramatic decline of sea population, the destruction of coral reefs, and the degradation of the ocean and its inhabitants. She is very concerned by the impact of human and industrial activities on marine environments and is involved in many conservation projects.

Medway served as a guide and marine consultant to Ocean wonderland crew.
