 Megan McClure (USA)

 Megan obtained a BA in Anthropology from Monmouth University in New Jersey and is currently working towards an MSc in Anthropology, Environment and Development at University College London. She is not from a biological background but is interested in the way MAREFA works with both the whale watching tourism industry and the community. Through working with MAREFA she will research the importance of nature-based tourism, and specifically whale watching, for the local community, through their perceptions of this activity and its impacts.
