Meet five Edinburgh alumni working to save our oceans in different ways.
Saving our oceans
With a nod to World Oceans Day, which falls on 8 June each year, our featured alumni this month are all engaged in protecting our oceans - whether working with costal communities to rebuild tropical fisheries, helping to produce a flagship BBC natural history documentary or funding the collection of ocean-bound plastic through sustainable bottle sales.
Find out what our graduates from the Schools of GeoSciences, Biological Sciences and History are doing to improve the health of our oceans for the benefit of everyone.
Days after submitting her MSc Marine Systems and Policies dissertation, Erin McFadden embarked on a new career path as part of the Frozen Planet II production team with the BBC Natural History Unit.
My role as a Researcher involves a lot more than researching new stories: it encompasses every stage of pre and post production, and luckily for me it involves a lot of time in locations most people just cannot get to.
Zoology graduate Dr Alasdair Harris set up social enterprise Blue Ventures in 2003. Years on, its mission to rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities has never been so urgent, or so critical.
