“I want European fisheries management to become more sustainable, but sitting inside the scientific ivory tower and watching while others make fishy decisions is not for me. ClientEarth’s approach is a brilliant solution: we use the law to give science and the environment a voice that decision-makers cannot ignore.”

Science and Policy Advisor, Biodiversity
