Anna is currently in her final year of studying Biological Sciences at Durham University. She hopes to continue her studies in the field of Marine Biology or Oceanography before a PhD or maybe branching out into Science Communication… who knows!
I am incredibly passionate about our coasts and oceans, and all of the weird and wonderful lifeforms that they support. It is undeniable that our planet is changing, these fascinating communities included, so I believe it is vitally important to all muck in and try to combat this in some way.
I love spending time in nature, travelling, and good food with great company.
Hannah holds a BSc in Zoology and an MSc in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation. She is excited to continue to learn about conservation and help conserve the UK coastlines, inspiring others to have a positive relationship with the coast.
My masters thesis focused on quantifying the ecological impact of a recreational fishery and I am especially interested in the interaction between people and wildlife. Having worked in the hospitality sector, I am definitely a people person. I enjoy talking with the public to encourage engagement with nature, as an RSPB volunteer ranger. Working with the Plover Rovers gives me the opportunity to be a part of a wonderful project to support the link between coastal communities and marine conservation.
I am a keen foodie and explorer , I enjoy spending my free time in nature. I also enjoying reading books and like to read new genres.
Annelise currently works as a learning assistant at a wetlands reserve and knows the N-E coast very well and wants to play a part in educating people to inspire positive behaviour change when they interact with their coastal environment.
I've always spent time at the coast and beaches so having the opportunity to educate people on the importance of preserving not just its wildlife but the landscape is very important.
I love photography, being outdoors, travel, lacrosse and kayaking.
Georgie grew up in London, and graduated in 2019 with a BSc Environmental Science from UEA which included a year studying abroad at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. She now works in marine planning, which involves working with a wide range of stakeholders in the East and nationally.
I'm passionate about protecting the marine environment, and doing that by engaging and empowering people by sharing knowledge and science.
