A conservationist and social entrepreneur, Al has spent a decade researching and tackling marine environmental crises in developing countries.

Former chairman of Oxford University Exploration Society, Al's life-long obsession with corals led him to establish Blue Ventures, an international marine conservation organisation whose projects have received the prestigious United Nations Equator Prize and Seed Award, in recognition of their work in biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation.

Al is a member of the World Commission on Protected Areas, recipient of the 2010 World Conservation Union’s Young Conservationist Award and winner of the 2009 Condé Nast Environment Award.

Currently based in Madagascar, his work developing sustainable business approaches for financing conservation has twice been commended by UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown in the annual ‘Enterprising Young Brits’ awards.
