Rebecca Hodgkiss

Becky is a conservation biologist who was born in the UK but spent her childhood on the move. She grew up in the USA, Norway, Indonesia and Singapore; this exposure to different cultures and wildlife instilled in her a love of travel, exploring and nature. After graduating with an MSc in Animal Behaviour, she returned to SE Asia to work as a Field Biologist in Malaysia. Becky then moved to Seychelles and spent four years coordinating projects on sea turtles, giant tortoises, seabirds and endemic passerines, and was part of a team who set up a lemon shark tagging project. As Conservation Manager for a private island reserve, she was responsible for monitoring populations of terns, tropicbirds and the Seychelles magpie robin (once one of the rarest birds in the world!). Her most recent posting was on the RSPB’s Little Tern Recovery Project on the Norfolk coast. She is a PADI/SSI Divemaster and keen amateur wildlife photographer and holds a ringing permit with the South African Bird Ringing Unit. Her multi-national upbringing has given her itchy feet for life, and what better way to satisfy this urge to explore the world, whilst sharing her passion for wildlife and conservation, than on expedition cruises!
