Hailing from Scotland, Sean Mowbray is a graduate of History and International Relations from the University of Dundee. He has always had a passion for the natural world and his interest in environmental politics was piqued at some point during University by the lack of discussion about it among his fellow students. Writing has also always been a passion of his and from a very young age he wrote short stories as a means of expression. It was somewhat of a natural progression to combine these two interests and now he writes and blogs for several online publications on a variety of subjects. His interests lie primarily in environmental crime, specifically the illegal trafficking of wildlife. An avid traveler he has previously volunteered at a sanctuary for animals poached for the pet trade in Bolivia. Sean currently works as the volunteer coordinator for a marine turtle conservation NGO in Maldives.
