Coast and Marine Advisor
National Trust, UK
Mr. Dyke has spent the last 30 years witnessing changes in the coastal environment that’s both his specialty and passion. It’s his job to advise and support colleagues as they deal with the UK’s constantly shifting coastline and the difficult decisions associated with managed re-alignment, whilst working also with external partners to promote sustainable approaches to the development of coastal and marine management. He maintains his academic interests through teaching at a number of universities and collaborating on research projects related to furthering the understanding of climate change driven coastal change and impacts upon the natural environment and culture heritage. His career began with the National Trust on coastal and marine issues on the Isle of Wight and he then moved to Cornwall. Now based in Devon he works across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
