Conservation Heroes


Episode 5: Oceans
Guest: Jeff Ardron


Welcome to Conservation Heroes, the heroes of this show are the dolphins, bats, otters, mangroves, newts and many others who are protecting our environment right now. This show will look at different laws, guidelines, or policies and will also offer you some top tips to help you protect our planet and even become a conservation hero yourself. Each episode will contain interviews from scientists, academics, lawyers, environmental activists and more.


Jeff Ardron, Adviser on Ocean Governance to The Commonwealth Secretariat, talks about how his work as a fisherman lead him to go back to university and retrain in Environmental Management and eventually end up leading on The Commonwealth Blue Charter. The charter is an agreement by all 54 Commonwealth countries to actively co-operate to solve ocean-related problems and meet commitments for sustainable ocean development.
