Madison Bowden-Parry will be taking to the Photo / Inspiration Stage at the GO Diving Show to explain how YOU can get involved with marine conservation projects.
Madison is a PhD researcher, marine and natural history photographer, science communicator and Apeks Ambassador from Wales, and she'll be on stage on Saturday 4 March from 11.30am-12.15pm.
Madi studies past human-ocean interactions and the long-term dynamics of kelp habitats in Sussex, with the aim to learn from the past to inform contemporary marine conservation and restoration goals. Madi will be talking about her conservation photography career, our long history with the sea, and how we can become stewards of our marine environment.
