About

DSCF2742

 

Nik Hubbard is a science writer, aspiring conservationist, and amateur photographer. He recently completed an MSc in Evolutionary and Behavioural Ecology at the outstanding Cornwall campus of the University of Exeter.

While he loves pretty much everything in the natural world, Nik really enjoys the quirkier side of nature, and has a soft spot for marine invertebrates in particular. He adores cephalopods and gets misty-eyed at the rapid, mind-blowing colour change and brilliant behaviours of cuttlefish and octopuses.

When near the coast, Nik can often be found sploshing around in rockpools, poking around in seaweed and peering under rocks (carefully!), hoping to find intertidal treasures; a tiny porcelain crab, maybe, or perhaps a rare glimpse of a Bloody Henry sea star or shagrug nudibranch. Otherwise, he is perfectly happy when throwing himself into cold water, be it the Cornish coast, a Norwegian fjord, or a mountain lake in Snowdonia. Brr.
