Fancy a Brew? Podcast (Series 2 Episode 11) – Talking to Octavia Whates

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

In this episode I speak to Octavia Whates – She’s a massive ocean advocate with infectious enthusiasm about what goes on along her local coastline. 

Growing up home educated, she has always been interested in marine life, particularly sharks. Her aim is to share her passion, educate and change peoples perception of sharks. She regularly does beach cleans and loves hunting for empty shark and ray egg cases on the local beaches in Devon!

The 18 year old took part in a dune restoration project in 2015 on the Island of Sylt in Germany and is really hoping to volunteer in shark and marine life conservation in the future.

About Author

Andy is the host of "Are you a diver, fancy a brew?" podcast which speaks to more and lesser known divers that interest him. Those with personality and a tale or message to tell. I’m less interested in those that have been on every show because we have all heard them 100’s of times but there are some real good people out there trying to do good things and I want to have a brew and get to know them, hopefully learning something at the same time. I pride myself on the research and post production that I see other podcasters miss out on. 10,000 downloads for season 1.
