Sea Urchins is the result of a deep dream of Marine Biologist and Padi Diving instructor, Samantha Hewitt;

"A life-long love of nature, teaching and conservation has led me to create this magazine on the importance of sea-conservation and what we need to do to look after our beautiful oceans. I have spent most of my life learning about the way nature works and trying to share this with anyone who will listen!"

I was first opened up to the wonderful world of nature as a child at the age of seven when my grandfather subscribed me to a wildlife magazine. A small enough gesture but one that had a pretty huge impact. I went on to study marine biology, travel the world, complete more than 1000 dives, work in publishing and now I have embarked on my biggest challenge yet. Sea Urchins.

I hope this magazine will go on to impact the next generation and as many people as possible. With regular features and news updates, Sea Urchins will open your eyes to the things we take for granted, actions we need to start taking and things we need to change. I am extremely proud to have launched the first full edition and hope it sparks the interest in you that I felt all these years ago, thanks to my grandfather.
