After graduating as a biologist, he had the privilege to travel and work in several other countries including the UK and Gabon. Much of his time has been spent in Namibia focussing on Heaviside’s and bottlenose dolphin ecology. More recently, he moved back to Cape Town to setup Sea Search in South Africa. Although interested in all aspects of the ocean, he is particularly interested in the behavioural adaptations that cetaceans make to different environmental conditions. This is an important line of research due to the increasing number of changes that have occurred in the marine realm from human impacts.Sea Search
