The year in industry and fieldwork opportunities using the Guiding Light were a big draw to this course. I have spent time working for The Wildlife Trust campaigning and educating the public in marine issues. I carried out intertidal surveys on the Isles of Scilly. I now advise the government on its marine obligations to create and manage Marine Protected Areas in UK offshore waters.
