Maya will be attending the annual conference of the Institute of Outdoor Learning Conference 12-13th October. Here she will be carrying out a workshop to encourage using all of our senses during our explorations of the great outdoors.

She will also be promoting her soon to be published (May 2013) book the RSPB Handbook of the Seashore (Bloomsbury publishing). There are also potential contracts looming for another second marine themed book – watch this space!

In the next few weeks she will also be working on an educational video for a conservation organisation – more details to follow!

Maya has been enjoying lots of opportunities to go diving off the South Devon and Cornish coast! She’s been also brushing up her diving skills and progressing with further qualifications – soon to be qualified as a BSAC Sports Diver (PADI Rescue Diver equivalent).
