Maddie St Clair Baker, the Whale sharks project ambassador.
Mads is an MSc tropical marine biologist, divemaster and founder of non-profit organisation, Women in Ocean Science. Originally from the UK, her obsession with the enthralling world of coral reefs has taken her across the globe. From marine bioacoustics to megafauna, she has a diverse background in tropical marine research, with a particular focus on manta rays. Seeing the destruction of the marine environment first-hand, in recent years Mads has also transitioned from scientist to an ocean advocate. She has channelled her energy into becoming a freelance underwater photographer and content creator, to document the changing world through her media and apparel company, Nü Wave.
