Claire Tanner

Marine Biologist

I am a Marine Biologist interested in animal behaviour and human-wildlife interactions. Through researching animal behaviour, it’s enabled me to study the interactions between animals and their environment as well as the factors that influence behaviour. It’s amazing to be able to study these animals in their natural habitats!

I have previously researched parental care in birds (during my PhD at the University of Bath), the effects of climate change on sea turtles (during my MSc at the University of Exeter) and lizard evolution (during my BSc at the University of Bangor).

I am currently working in partnership with the Marine Management Organisation to assess the extent of the human-wildlife-interactions between seals and commercial fishers in the UK and the potential of different fisheries-seal conflict mitigation strategies.
