Callum Roberts is professor of marine conservation at the University of York. His research focuses on threats to marine ecosystems and species, and on finding the means to protect them. For the last 25 years, he has used his science background to make the case for stronger protection for marine life at both national and international levels. His award-winning books, The Unnatural History of the Sea (2007, Island Press) and Ocean of life: how our seas are changing (2012, Penguin/Viking), show how the oceans are changing under human influence. His research team provided the scientific underpinning for half a million square kilometres of marine protected areas in the North Atlantic established in 2010. Secrets of the Seas: A Journey into the Heart of the oceans (2016, Bloomsbury), co-authored with the underwater photographer Alex Mustard, describes the wonders of the underwater world in vivid images and prose.
