Jack holds a degree in Zoology and Marine Biology and wants to pursue a career in conservation to tackle the issues resulting from of climate change.

 The ocean is vitally important to our planet and therefore, a necessity exists to protect it. The aim of the Plover Rovers is one which resonates with me as education and local engagement are crucial to ensuring sustainability. Having the opportunity to be a part of this charity and empower communities is very exciting.

Liv is currently in her final year of studying an integrated Masters in Marine Biology at the University of Liverpool. Her thesis centres around how climate change effects the body condition and nesting date of Arctic seabirds. She wishes to pursue a career in research or marine policy / consultancy work.

Strengthening connections between the community and their coastlines is vital for the success of conservation strategies. Plover Rovers helps to bridge the gap between the environmental knowledge of academics and these communities, so they can help each other to meet sustainable goals. Informing people about the environment in which they utilise and depend upon is therefore super important to facilitate positive changes - I am excited to help play a role in bringing ocean awareness to these communities and to contribute to such changes!

A MSc Graduate in Marine Biology, Jake has recently been working in media production to help produce Natural History documentaries showcasing the Marine life around the British Isles. He hopes to soon go back into academics and research studying behavioral and physiological aspects of marine life.

Currently, Jake is taking some time off because he's doing research in South Africa!

 I am an avid diver and love to surround myself with marine life of all shapes and sizes, feeling most comfortable floating and observing marine life as it passes by. When I’m not obsessing over marine biology I enjoy gaming in my off time and playing various table top games with my friends.

I am passionate about what Plover Rovers is doing because I am blessed to have the understanding of our marine/coastal environments through my personal experience and I believe it is vital that the general public have the same level of knowledge so that they can become passionate as well and gain that same motivation to protect what we have. The marine/coastal environment surrounding the British isle is so important - I want to help spread awareness of its importance!
