Hello, I’m Lyndsey and I am the Head of UK & EU Marine Policy. I’ll be blogging about our wonderful seas and about the exciting work that we do to improve protection and management and ensure they are healthy and productive well into the future!
I’ve been with WWF since 2007, initially working on the delivery of new marine legislation in the UK – the Marine and Coastal Access Act, then managing the PISCES and Celtic Seas Partnership projects. In my current role I lead a team of 12 working on UK and EU marine policy in areas such as fisheries, protected areas, planning and stakeholder engagement. Before joining WWF I was researching deep-sea corals off the coasts of the UK for my PhD. I’m passionate about the marine environment and the ability to collaboratively find sustainable solutions that deliver benefits for people and nature.
