Hugo Tagholm leads the national marine conservation and campaigning charity Surfers Against Sewage (SAS). The charity takes action from the beach front to the front benches of Parliament, where it unites a voice for the ocean through its Ocean Conservation All Party Parliamentary Group. It mobilises over 100,000 community beach and river clean volunteers annually and has been instrumental in helping introduce and enforce new government legislation to protect our seas. He is an environmentalist, award-winning campaigner, surfer, charity professional and a TEDx speaker. This year he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Science for his services to marine conservation by Exeter University.
Hugo lives in Cornwall with his wife Sarah and son Darwin.
