Lynn

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!

Sally

Environmental Justice enthusiast and avid reader 

Sally is currently undertaking a B.Soc.Sci. in Politics and Sociology.

Social issues are inherently linked to environmental issues, which is why a political and societal perspective is so crucial. I'm passionate about helping to bridge the gap between social science and natural science in order to tackle the climate crisis in a more just, integrated and community-focused way.

Ella

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.
