Locally managed marine areas Locally managed marine areas

Steve is a tropical marine ecologist at the University of York working with communities, charities and the tourism sector to improve marine resource management.

His interdisciplinary research focuses on the effectiveness, scaleability and financing of locally managed marine areas (LMMAs) in the Western Indian Ocean and South Pacific, with a second strand exploring biases among researchers and tourists in their perceptions of marine conservation.

In addition to his research, Steve also consults on a wide range of marine-related issues for environmental charities and uses his background as a graphic designer and software developer for several major multinationals to help organisations to tell better visual stories with their data.
