Charlotte Richardson – MSc Student, University of Portsmouth
Charlotte obtained her honours undergraduate degree in Physical Geography at the University of Portsmouth and is now studying to gain an MSc in Coastal and Marine Resource Management. Charlotte’s childhood dream had been to work in the conservation of animals and the environment. She has seen the change in water pollution over the years and, in particular, the adverse effects plastic pollution has on the coast and seashore. Due to her father’s interest in boats and her love of the sea, she began to find purpose in making sure that the sea is well protected.
