Take a dive with Catherine, the Marine Conservation Society’s Scotland Conservation Officer as she introduces some of her favourite Scottish Sea Creatures and what we can all do to help save them!
We will learn how divers talk under water, what they call different sea creatures and how we can all play our part in looking after our seas.
As the Marine Conservation Societies Scotland Conservation Officer my work can cover many different projects from education and public engagement to campaigns and policy. Over the past six years I have mainly been focusing on the promotion of our beach cleaning and litter surveying project Beachwatch and using the data collected to drive change in marine litter policy. Prior to MCS I have held several public engagement and environmental education roles after I studied Marine and Coastal Resource Management at Aberdeen University, which is where I also learnt to dive. Whether under, on or beside the sea it is fantastic to have come full circle to now be working for a marine conservation charity and volunteering as a STEM Ambassador to help inspire some ocean optimism and encourage everyone to take action to protect our incredible seas.
