He has taken part in projects since the turn of the century both in Madagascar and the Indian Ocean, and has done so as a research diver and medic as well as leading a number of expeditions that have culminated in awards from Buckingham Palace. The most important thing to him, though, is the fact that he can help in his own way, to make a substantial difference to protecting the environment as well as the way that humans influence it.
Rob is an anaesthetist and a Trustee of Blue Ventures Conservation. He was an intern for Divers Alert Network, the largest diving medical and safety group in the world, and led diving research out in the Caymans. He has an interest in expeditions and is actively involved in the expedition medicine.
