HWDT Welcomes New Marine Biodiversity Officer Ahead of Season
With Silurian's first survey of the season just days away, we are delighted to introduce Becky Dudley, our new Marine Biodiversity Officer, to the HWDT team! She will be joining the rest of the crew on our first survey next Sunday 15th April, along with Emma Burgess, our Boat Manager, and Simon van Dam, our First Mate.
It was during this experience that Becky decided she wanted to protect and learn more about the marine environment. She has recently graduated with an MRes in Applied Marine Science from the University of Plymouth. Her master’s research project used data collected by citizen scientists to assess the social structure, distribution and abundance of bottlenose dolphins in southwest England, providing evidence for England’s first resident population.
Welcome to the team Becky!
