Cornwall Marine Academy Ambassadors - Marine Industry Opportunities and Training

Marion Beaulieu

Originally from France, I graduated from a BSc Wildlife and Practical Conservation at the University of Salford in 2014. In 2016, I moved to Cornwall with my partner Rick to become a full-time volunteer for the National Trust in West Penwith and started surveying my local site for CSGRT. I soon took on the photo ID process from making albums to running the catalogue, and started helping out in the office, on stalls and at talks.

How did you get into the job role?

Volunteering firstly, then doing admin jobs for CSGRT one day a week. Funding arrived in 2018 for the role of Amazement and Discovery Ranger three days a week, which increased to four days since.

What would you consider is the best part about your job?

I feel extremely fortunate to be working alongside an amazing network of volunteers, all passionate about giving seals a voice on their patch. To me, the best part of my job is inspiring others to help by sharing the knowledge I have gained about these fascinating animals with them.

Where do you operate in Cornwall?

All over Cornwall, Devon and beyond.
