Hi I'm Tom!

Whale ecologist looking to expand network of fellow conservationists
Hi I'm Tom!

Hello! My name is Tom and I am just finishing a PhD with the University of Edinburgh. I assessed the impacts of whale-watching activities on humpback whales in Iceland. I also co-founded and co-direct a small whale research and engagement charity, Whale Wise. We mostly operate in Iceland and the UK, with a heavy focus on scientific research. I am looking to expand my network of conservationist connections to inspire my own conservation work. In particular, I have less experience in practical conservation action and I'd love to hear about people's journeys through this field, as well as sharing my own. 

My favourite animals are blue whales, bowhead whales and orcas. And my favourite wildlife encounter was with a blue whale in Iceland while sailing along the North coast. 

Thanks for having me!
