I'm Rich, I have worked in shark research and conservation for over 14 years now. The day job is still actually studying and conserving whale sharks in the Indian Ocean. The charity I co-founded with a friend, Jim from Saundersfoot is called the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme.
For me there has been a lot of rediscovery involved in moving back to Pembrokeshire. I grew up in and around the sea, yet never snorkelled until I left home and travelled abroad. Being involved in shark conservation I am particularly excited at the prospect of getting more people in the water with our sharks, but the same goes for other stuff too. What we have in our own waters is truly incredible and I was as excited as anyone to realise what was so close to home.
If you have have any questions I’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach me using the form below.
