Turtle loving conservationist

Bella (MA. Geography MSc Environment, Science and Society) is a content creator for the Plover Rovers and responsible for our Facebook page.

‘I believe that we must work harder to conserve our marine environments, and that the key to achieving this is through engagement - both with coastal communities and those from further afield.’ 



Animal lover, adventurous and always up for a laugh

Helen is currently busy with her PhD, researching the effects of radiation on birds in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. In her spare time, she is a content creator for the Plover Rovers with a focus on writing blog posts.

I am passionate about the Plover Rovers because I think it is important to engage with different groups of communities to help raise awareness about coastal challenges and help support the future of coastal ecosystems.



I currently live in Geneva, work at IUCN in the Marine Team on marine plastics, and volunteer from afar for Plover Rovers.

Lynn holds an MSc in Marine Environmental Protection and has outlined our overarching Comms Strategy.

 I am passionate about Plover Rovers because I think once people know more about their coastal environs they will love them, want to protect them, and use them wisely. I love the idea of science meeting nature and sharing stories about the marine environment of the English Coast!



Marine enthusiast, Plant lover, Scuba diver

Ruth, who holds a BSc in Biology and an MSc in Tropical Marine Biology is a scientific blogger and as a content creator focuses on writing blog posts.

Growing up I loved visiting Britain’s coastal environments. It inspired me to become a marine biologist and made me passionate about improving others’ ocean literacy through science communication.

I am passionate about the marine coastal environment because I feel at home by the sea and I want to be part of helping Plover Rovers preserve and protect this environment by raising awareness.



Loves writing, mountain biking, and jumping into Lake Superior

Ella is a creative writer for the Plover Rovers, developing a work of fiction which will make the English coast come to life.

Living over 1000 km from the nearest ocean has made me extra appreciative of the experiences I've had with the sea! I joined Plover Rovers to help make science more accessible to coastal communities and to deepen my own connection to marine environments.

Unapologetically obsessed with chocolate, travelling and wildlife conservation

Laura has a BSc in Marine Biology and takes care of our YouTube channel, creating content and editing videos to create exciting pieces of science communication to engage a wide audience.

I was once told that those who discover how incredible nature really is, feel then inspired to protect nature themselves. Like a set of dominos, they can then inspire others to do the same.  The Plover Rovers are helping to get that first ball rolling; to educate, inspire and empower the public to help save our coasts and, to me, that is so exciting. 



adventurer; you'll normally find me on the waves, rocks or up a tree. Coffee addict!

 I'm a first-generation PhD student in physical oceanography in Bangor, North Wales. If you can't find me, I'll be at the beach!

Katie is taking care of our Twitter in between her busy PhD schedule.

 Growing up, I spent almost all my spare time at the beach and in the mountains, so I've always had a fabulous appreciation of the outdoors and our world. It's this passion that I want to share with people across the UK, which is why I got involved in the Plover Rovers charity!


The Plover Rovers are a charity dedicated to enhancing ocean literacy and empowering coastal communities through delivering exciting scientific talks all along the English Coast Path.
