Sophie Atkinson

Research Intern

Sophie is currently undertaking a Zoology degree at the University of Sussex, with the aim of pursuing a career in conservation. Having completed an internship with IPNLF in the summer of 2020, she has returned to the team to support Zac Edwards on the development of the Sourcing Transparency Platform. Sophie is passionate about the conservation of marine ecosystems and is proud to have another opportunity to help IPNLF spread the word about sustainable fishing practices.

“Throughout my adult life I have been lucky enough to explore different parts of the world and through my degree I am pursuing a career in making that world a healthier and more sustainable place. I am passionate about reducing damage to our oceans and working with IPNLF will allow me to build transparency throughout supply chains and be a part of a circular economy project, as I believe this is the way forward if we are to save our valued and important ecosystems.”
