Charlotte, who holds a BSc in Marine Biology, was part of Liverpool's Last Straw campaign and a sustainability champion for her uni's Marine Biology and Oceanography Society. She is looking forward to continue to make a difference.
I am extremely passionate about the marine/coastal environment and local engagement and education. Plover Rover's is an exciting opportunity to allow me to combine two of my loves in life. I am looking forward to gaining skills and being involved with coastal communities during my adventure into further studies in Marine Biology.

Map-loving, fearless adventurer!
I’m thrilled to be a part of the team at plover rovers. The plan to pull this wealth of scientific knowledge together with visuals to be accessible to all is genius. Everyone in this country will be able to take part in celebrating our wondrous coastal landscapes. I cannot wait to see what we can create together.

Rachel has a degree in Law and has worked in the legal industry for the past 11 years. A passionate diver, she believes that knowledge and awareness is key for conservation of our environment and likes the transdisciplinary approach of our project.
The oceans and their inhabitants hold a special place in my heart and I want to help raise awareness of their current plight and the impact of human behaviour on the fragile ecosystem within. Plover Rovers’ aims are original and exciting and the “Talking the Coast” project has real potential to make a huge difference to both local communities and the environment. I am excited to be involved and get other people involved; together, we can make a huge difference!

Roz graduated from UCC with a BSc in Zoology and wants to further specialise in marine sciences and conservation.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of an initiative that helps educate and connect communities to their local coast and communicate how they can contribute to preserving the marine environment. I also look forward to learning valuable skills and information myself through this experience as I plan to further my studies in Marine Biology.
Tom, a Cornwall native, studies for his MSc in Coastal Science and Policy at UC Santa Cruz but will spend the next 7 months in Liberia to work on developing a national management plan for a sea cucumber fishery as part of his masters thesis.
I'm a fish fanatic, nature lover and I think that working with people is the key to conserving and celebrating the marine life I love. Rockpooling, birdwatching and fishing along the British coastline has given me endless joy and inspired me to pursue a career as a marine conservationist. I want to work with the Plover Rovers to share my love of British marine life with others.
