Blue Ventures works with some of the worlds poorest coastal communities to rebuild tropical fisheries and catalyse a broader engagement in marine conservation. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and are committed to protecting biodiversity in ways that benefit coastal communities.
Martin is part of Blue Ventures’ UK based management team, responsible for managing their global communications and digital activities.
As well as a wide background in digital design and photography he has experience in research, exploring issues of climate change adaptation and conservation policy at the Centre for Environmental Change and Human Resilience at the University of Dundee, and before that spent four years as a Teaching Fellow in the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences at the University of Glasgow where he lectured on environmental management and conservation. Martin has been lucky enough to work for conservation projects all over the world including research stints in his native Scotland, Indonesian Borneo, Gambia and living for a year with the Payamino community remote in the amazon rainforest of Ecuador.
