Maya is a marine ecology and coastal expert. She has a BSc Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology, and an MSc Integrated Coastal Zone Management. As well as running her own marine education business – Learn To Sea, she is a presenter and writer. Maya was invited as a contributor on Springwatch in 2009 and later asked back on as guest presenter for BBC Autumnwatch. She has since appeared on a number of shows - ITV's Hungry Sailors and soon on the new series of BBC Coast. In 2013 Maya published her first book, "The RSPB Handbook of the Seashore”. 

"My relationship with the sea started from a young age and has grown into a life-long passion.  As this relationship has grown I have discovered just how much we all enjoy and rely on our seas yet how much pressure we also put on it by our burgeoning society. Sea-Changers is an incredibly exciting charity that helps to redress this balance by allowing sea users and business to actively support marine conservation. I am delighted to join the Sea-Changers team to help make our mutual dream of better conserved seas a reality!"

Guy Grieve

Guy has worked as a writer, journalist and television presenter with a strong connection with ethically produced food. From 2004-2005 he lived solo in the wilderness of the Interior of Alaska, documented in his book ‘Call of the Wild: my escape to Alaska’. From 2007-8, along with his wife and children, he skippered a sailing boat over 10,000 miles from Venezuela back to Scotland, including crossing the notorious Great Circle route across the North Atlantic. Guy is passionately committed to the health of the marine environment, and the motivation for starting The Ethical Shellfish Company comes largely from his concerns regarding the damage done by intensive fishing, and his conviction that fishing methods must be changed to ensure the long-term health of our seas. Guy dives for scallops personally from the company’s boat, Invictus, on the Isle of Mull. 

Guy said: "I am very excited to be joining Sea-Changers. I have been concerned for a long time about the damage being done by mobile fishing to the health of our shallow in-shore waters and the Ethical Shellfish Company seeks to show that things can be done differently. I care passionately about the health of our seas and it is fantastic to find people who want to do something to support marine conservation in the UK. I hope many more will become involved through the great work of Sea-Changers.”
