Andrew Wright is a British marine biologist that has been working on the
science-policy boundary around the world for over a decade. His experiences
have led him to champion a better communication of science to policy makers and
the lay public. His research has included an investigation of harbour porpoise sleeping and bioacoustics, a population viability analysis for
the vaquita, sperm whales bioacoustics and the impacts of noise on various
marine mammals. Andrew is currently working to update the New Zealand Code of
Conduct for Seismic Surveys for the Department of Conservation. He is also
spearheading efforts to bring more marketing techniques into conservation outreach.
