Max Renton, BSc
Max studied BSc Animal Biology, during which he undertook an internship and research project in South Africa to investigate the influence of environmental parameters on a population of great white sharks in Mossel Bay. He has since undertaken an internship at Defa, Isle of Man, where he produced a report on their coordinated environmental monitoring programme for hazardous substances in Manx coastal waters. As one of the new Coastal Explorer Interns, Max is looking forward to gaining valuable experience and knowledge in the marine environment, from conservation to renewable energy. Prior to this role, Max undertook the Coast Explorer Internship, which was offered by Adonis, The Crown Estate, Vattenfall and Canterbury City Council; his main project was Kent's Inshore Fisheries Project. The project’s aim was to build an understanding of the inshore fisheries around Kent, to give an insight of how best to work closer with the fishers to benefit both the marine environment and the fisheries.
