Carol Grant
Winner of the 2009 Nature Conservancy Photo Contest

Growing up in Southern California, Carol Grant has always been intrigued by the beauty of the ocean. “As a child, I vividly remember watching episodes of Sea Hunt after school and wondering if I could ever have underwater adventures too,” says Carol.

This curiosity led Carol to pick up a camera. “I think [al]most anyone who has a passion for the natural world dreams of being able to communicate that beauty through photographs,” she says.

As her experiences with marine life grew, Carol says she became determined to learn how to photograph the unique creatures and habitats with which she fell in love. “Underwater photography is challenging because it entails not only a knowledge of photography, but specialized equipment knowledge, excellent buoyancy skills and confidence in handling oneself well underwater at the same time,” explains Carol.

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust is a charity which relies on the generous support of volunteers at all its wetland centres to help with conservation work and other daily tasks. It also organises Team Activity Days for local companies and businesses giving them the chance to spend a day in the great outdoors while helping us to tackle larger projects.

Slimbridge has over 100 volunteers and each volunteer is a very welcome addition to the team. Without them the centre would not be able to offer the activities, events and all round excellent visitor experience that it does. Although volunteers work without financial reward there are many other ways that they benefit from becoming a WWT volunteer; learning new skills, meeting new people, keeping fit and gaining experience are just a few.
