Diving into conservation

A local university student has become an ambassador for a volunteer wildlife group. Steph Poole, a wildlife conservation student at Harper Adams university, has been selected for the role at GVI, an organiser of volunteer projects.

Steph’s final year project involved assessing the impact of plastics on rivers, so the position relating to marine biology seemed a natural fit for her.

As part of the role, she flew out to the Seychelles to dive and learn about the marine wildlife. Of the experience Steph said, “I had to learn about 52 species of Indo-Pacific commercial fish and got to run coral beach and turtle surveys which enhanced my identification skills. It was an amazing time and I managed to complete seventy-six dives in three months.”
