In this episode, we talk to Arabella Willing. She is a British marine biologist, known for her work with Hawksbill turtles and environmental outreach programmes. She has worked all over the world educating isolated communities about biology, sustainability and marine conservation. She was the Hyatt hotels first “Resident Marine Biologist”. In January 2019 she joined Emirates Nature-WWF as a Conservation Education Consultant, helping them to launch “Connect with Nature” a programme that gives UAE youth access to learning and leadership opportunities, one-of-a-kind experiences and thrilling adventures. 

During this episode, we take a look at how plastic pollution is affecting our marine life. What we can do if we ever find a turtle in distress on the beach and who to contact. We also look at how climate change is affecting the hatching of turtles as the heat of the sand determines the gender of the turtles.
