James McClelland

James is a British Conservation Biologist who was bitten by the travel bug whilst carrying out research on coral reef fish for his undergraduate degree in Environmental Science. He has gone on to conduct and lead ecological fieldwork programmes from the UK to Seychelles and South-East Asia. Most recently, James co-managed the conservation programme for a private nature reserve, working with important populations of nesting Hawksbill sea turtles, many species of seabird and the endangered Seychelles Magpie Robin. He is currently completing a master’s degree studying lemon shark genetics and holds a bird ringing permit under the South African Ringing Unit. James spent (possibly) too much of his childhood, armed with a net and a bucket, hunting down anything that moved in every available pond, stream or rock-pool he could find. He is never happier than when he is on, in, under or by water, and in addition to his scientific work he is also an experienced Yacht master, Powerboat skipper and Divemaster.
