Rob Thompson is first and foremost, a conservationist. Intrigued by the marine world, he works fiercely to protect it.

At just three years old, Rob had his first glimpse under the sea.  While on holiday in Croatia, his parents strapped a mask and snorkel onto his little face and that was that – he was off! He spent the remainder of his vacation submerged, exploring amongst the seaweed, corals and creatures of the underwater world, and has since continued to do so at every opportunity he’s been given.

When I was a kid, our school used to run annual cleanups. It was always really fun. Firstly, we got to miss classes - yippee! But secondly - and more importantly - we discussed how we can protect the environment, we designed posters with messages, and talked about actions we could take to stop littering. I felt like I could take on the world and make it a better place.
