Hi Henry & Elizabeth,
I am due to be starting a new role soon with St. Helena National Trust in the South Atlantic, so would be great to keep in touch with you both.
Note I have not started yet, but will be working on projects including but not limited to reducing and reusing marine plastics (and other waste) on and around the island.
I am sure both of you will have had some involvement in this type of work or know of some valuable case studies, so please let me know if you have any suggestions for avenues to explore with this!
St. Helena is also surrounded by a category VI MPA, so there is much exciting research to be done, including on the 17 seamounts, and the very large Whale Shark aggregations - Elizabeth you may be aware of Georgia Aquarium's research here. I believe I'll also have some responsibility for engaging with research bodies to promote research on St. Helena through the new St. Helena Research Institute, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you or your collegues are interested.
I will follow your content on WildHub and hope to learn and gain some new ideas to move our small island forward.
