adventure and conservation go hand in hand
It was going on adventures that developed my passion for conservation. Spending time in nature, I started to reconnect with our natural world and I could no longer ignore the damage that I saw being done.
I really believe that adventure and conservation go hand in hand. Going on adventures…
- reconnect us to nature
- teach us how to live with less
- remove us from from modern day convenience
More than ever I value experiences over things. And just think how much carbon footprint I’ve reduced by switching everything off and ditching the car in favour of a hike or campout!
I’m committed to making all my travels and adventures as eco friendly as possible. And I want to share that passion with you and discoveries with others. From finding ways to use adventure to help the planet to choosing a plant based diet.
You’ll see from my travelling that I am far from environmentally sound. But my approach to conservation is being better, not being perfect.
It’s all about taking steps in the right direction.

If you’re as passionate about the oceans as I am then come join me at this years Blu-ee Fest. I co-founded this event with fellow marine conservationist, Jenny Hickman, to inspire people to do more to protect our oceans.
Over a weekend spent on the beautiful UK coastline there will be talks, workshops and conservation surveys.
