Sean's Wild Life
Cal Major, Ocean Advocate
A chat with inspiring, passionate marine conservationist, ocean advocate, adventurer and fellow vet Cal Major who is doing some awesome things. A multiple world record record holder, Cal has taken on some pretty epic challenges from stand up paddle boarding around the Isle of Skye to then taking on Land's End to John o'Groats on a stand up paddle board. I know, crazy! All in aid of raising funds, awareness and highlight the problem of plastic pollution in our seas.
We also explore what it means to be a vet, as an identity and as a profession, and for us what it means moving away from the traditional idea of what a vet is and does. The vet degree perhaps doesn't explore all the doors a veterinary degree opens for you in your career path. So it's really refreshing to hear from a vet like Cal doing her thing outside of the consultation room.
We chat about mental health, our need for the outdoors and nature, how we've become so disconnected as a society and how we've both been coping during lockdown.
