Having travelled the world from a young age, Megan became familiar with living in remote areas whilst searching for incredible wildlife.
In between her years at university studying Bsc Zoology, Megan aided many researchers and organisations around the world. From working as a behavioural intern in China to rehabilitate bears from the bear bile farming industry to researching the personalities and ecology of shark species at Bimini Sharklab, Megan has experience and knowledge working in various scientific fields and communicating complex scientific concepts to wider audiences.
Wildlife TV Presenter
In 2017, Megan presented Undercover Tourist: Inside the Illegal Bear Bile Market for BBC3 and has since grown her career in TV. Megan became a wildlife researcher and presenter for Lush Digital focusing on investigative filmmaking to expose environmental issues and illegal wildlife persecution. Co-presenting alongside Chris Packham, Megan also took part in a national bioblitz campaign and traveled to 50 conservation sites in 10 days to assess the state of the UK countryside.
Most recently, she reported on issues for Al Jazeera on plastic pollution and the social movement Extinction Rebellion for the award winning environmental series Earthrise.
She hopes to bring more awareness to the plight of species around the world and to educate others in the wonders of the planet.
Megan has been a keen wildlife photographer since she could hold a camera. She won the under 12’s RSPCA’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award in 2007 and is now most well-known for her Antarctic photography. In 2019, she was appointed as the coordinator and judge of Young Bird Photographer of the Year.
