I’m a marine scientist specialising in technology and science communication to achieve conservation outcomes.
If the Amazon rainforest is our planet's lungs, then Antarctica and the Southern Ocean are its heartbeat. At WWF, I work with our conservation team on complex issues in our most remote region. This means I work closely with researchers in the field and bring that knowledge to decision-makers to implement policy on a national and global level.
I’ve worked in over 30 countries studying whales, their habitat and the impacts on them, such as ocean pollution, climate change, entanglements and ship strikes. I try to creatively communicate critical issues and solutions to governments and the general public to reverse these impacts.
EVERY DAY I GO TO WORK AT WWF I KNOW THAT, TOGETHER, WE’RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE. OFTEN I’LL SHARE STORIES WITH MY DAUGHTER TO HELP INSPIRE HER GENERATION TO ACT BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE AND WE LOSE INCREDIBLE SPECIES AND PLACES.
Global Lead of the WWF Protecting Whales and Dolphins Initiative
