Sarah Roberts

Environmental Issues you can get your teeth into

Sarah is a naturalist with a thirst for adventure and a slight tendency for accidents. Luckily, she also holds a Wilderness First Responder qualification now, so is able to patch herself up in the field fairly well too! Sarah's degree in Animal Behaviour set her up as a wildlife nomad and also introduced her to heaps of environmental issues that she believes wholeheartedly everyone needs to know about.

Since 2012, Sarah has worked with wildlife in many countries from the Bahamas to South Africa, in a range of random roles, from assessing shark populations to tracking grizzly bears. Her experience within the natural world, amongst some of the planet’s most iconic ecosystems from rainforests to coral reefs, has given her a huge kick up the backside to do all she can to protect it.

Aside from the great outdoors, Sarah's big passion is storytelling. She is a huge believer that a lot of science is missed simply because people can’t understand the complex jargon or see how it would apply to their everyday life. So, through sheer stubbornness, she's sidestepped the 9-5 to pursue a career as an Eco-Journalist and Children’s Author to bridge this gap.

Her books were really clever and funny, but they had an important moral inside that everyone could understand"
