Talking to the popular face of ocean advocacy on Instagram Charlie Young. Known by many names, she's working hard to influence girls to enter careers in science, diving, adventure and media. She advertises herself as a Waterwomen, Conservationist, Wildlife Presenter & Adventurer and she's passionate about protecting our oceans, so makes for an awesome guest on this week's podcast.

🔴 Her Bio: 
Charlie is a passionate marine biologist (MSc), diver, expedition leader and wildlife presenter whose work has taken her around the globe to research threats such as plastic pollution and climate change, from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia. Mixing exploration with science, Charlie devotes her time to telling impactful stories about our marine world in a bid to inspire people to protect it. 

In 2018, Charlie was the lead plastics scientist on the OceanGeographic expedition to the Coral Triangle. Joining a team of award-winning photographers, filmmakers and scientists, she presented a documentary on her work quantifying the extent of plastic pollution in this area. The documentary was screened in a four-part symposium across Asia led by Dr Sylvia Earle and was chosen for the 2020 Melbourne Zoo Film Festival. Since then Charlie has gone on to present a number of impactful documentaries including a piece exposing the UK's involvement in the global shark fin trade. 

Through her work, Charlie has grown a combined 14k following across her social channels (Instagram, Twitter & YouTube) and recently launched a YouTube series called Saltwater Britain, aimed at highlighting the incredible marine wildlife on our doorstep. Through this series, Charlie hopes to put the UK seas back on the map and reconnect audiences with its incredible wildlife.
