Today, we are pleased to introduce you to Charlotte Andrews, who is going to assist the Sea Watch’s Sightings Officer in the organisation of their upcoming NWDW event at their main office in New Quay! We recently had a chat with Charlotte to learn more about her. Here’s her story!
About me: I am a biochemistry graduate, looking to follow a career in conservation. I have come over to Wales from Brighton, so to be living and working in such a beautiful part of the world where I see dolphins most days is completely wonderful! I have always had a keen interest in wildlife around the UK, thinking it is so rich and often overlooked; to have this opportunity to contribute to the conservation and protection of British and Irish waters is brilliant.
My experience here: I have come to Sea Watch interning in the role of Sightings Officer Assistant/National Whale and Dolphin Watch Assistant for the summer of 2019. Undertaking a role that requires a lot of outreach and engagement is great; the encouragement and support I get is very affirming of the good work being done by the Sea Watch Foundation, and by all the wonderful participants in the NWDW across the UK. It feels great to be working as part of something much bigger.
