Pippa has a degree in Geology from Oxford Brooks University and a Masters in Geohazards Assessment from the University of Portsmouth. After undertaking fieldwork in Hawaii and Mexico and a variety of jobs including Science technician for Cambridge University and a secondary school in Madrid, Pippa decided to change to a more Marine Science focus. Qualified to PADI Dive Master level she has worked as a dive guide in the Red Sea and her marine conservation experience involves volunteering on the Green turtle project in the Galapagos Islands, Marine Awareness assistant for the Devon Wildlife Trust and Beach ranger for the Marine Biological Association in the South West of England.
Most recently she has completed Marine Mammal Observer and Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) operator training and has worked the last 3 months before joining the Belize team in April 2013, on a remote PAM trail in North Devon.
She is now very happy to be out in the field once again and even happier that it's underwater!
