Laura Evans's biography

Laura EvansLaura Evans

Hello, I’m Laura and I’m part of the Celtic Seas Partnership team.

I’ll be blogging about our beautiful blue planet, ocean policy and the work that WWF is doing to protect our wonderful seas.

After spending some time working at corporate advertising agencies I quickly realised it was not the environment for me. My motivation comes from working on a cause that I believe in alongside a team of likeminded individuals. I have been campaigning about climate change, sustainability and our environmental impact as human beings for years and am a passionate advocate of living sustainably and conserving our environment and wildlife. I joined WWF in 2013, coming from a not-for-profit and environmental background working previously for Oxfam, MCS and Sustrans.
