I’m Laura Evans and I joined Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre in July 2015 as the Living Seas Volunteer Coordinator. I will be developing the Living Seas volunteer programme at CBMWC.
I have always been passionate about marine mammals and the marine environment. I studied Zoology with Marine Zoology at Bangor University, graduating in 2012.
After leaving university I spent 7 months as an intern studying bottlenose dolphin behaviour at the BDRI in Sardinia. I assisted with land and boat based field work, data entry and photo identification of dolphins.
I returned to university in 2013 to study Animal Behaviour at the University of Exeter, graduating in 2014. My masters project focused on communication in European fiddler crabs.
I first joined the CBMWC Living Seas Team as a volunteer in March 2015. Now as Living Seas Volunteer coordinator I will be managing the Living Seas volunteers at CMBWC and developing the volunteer programme.
