Daniel M Moore is a marine biologist with a passion for adventure. His professional research interests are broad but include: spatial ecology of marine predators, population biology and connectivity in marine predator populations. Daniel is a passionate conservationist and has worked in many remote locations around the world from isolated tropical volcanic islands to sub-arctic shorelines. When not pursuing his scientific interests he can usually be found seeking adventure in the mountains or on the ocean waves.
Daniel regularly works with businesses, NGOs and schools as a marine consultant and a passionate advocate for marine conservation. Daniel is an accomplished public speaker and writer. If you are interested in booking Daniel for an event or are keen to work with him as a consultant then you can contact him here.
He is currently conducting PhD research at Durham University investigating how oceanographic and environmental boundaries can influence the population structure of marine predator populations. This research uses the bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus and the yellowmouth barracuda Sphyraena viridensis as model species and examines their population structure across multiple front systems in the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.

Observing wildlife is a key passion for Daniel, such as these Rough-Toothed Dolphins spotted on a research expedition in the mid-Atlantic.
Many animals can be individually identified by markings or patterns, including whales and dolphins. Getting a good photograph however takes some skill.
A love for exploring drives Daniel to travel. This photo was taken during sunrise at Angkor Wat, Cambodia.
Marine Biology can take you to some interesting and beautiful locations. This is St. Kilda, a remote archipelago of the UK.
Daniel has spent significant time at sea, exploring some wild and remote locations.
Daniel recently participated in the Antarctic Circumpolar Expedition (ACE).
Sunrise above the clouds. In his spare time Daniel is a keen mountaineer.
First inspired to study the sea by palaeobiology this remains one of Daniel’s interests to date. This fossilized tooth comes from Carcharocles megalodon and remains in Daniel’s personal collection.
Daniel is a passionate believer in the sustainable use of the sea by all. Finding opportunities for industry, recreation and conservation to work in harmony is a key part of his ethos.
Placing a temperature logger into the nest of a Green Turtle. Daniel has worked with a great variety of marine animals.
Daniel has worked with deep sea sharks extensively such as this specimen collected in the North Atlantic.
The coasts of Britain still harbour some of Daniel’s favourite wild places.
