#VoteForAnt as 2019’s Tourism Superstar!

Help us support our own Anthony Hurd to win the Visit Britain 2019 Tourism Superstar Awards.

We need your help! Ant, who manages our Living Seas Centre in Flamborough, has been chosen as one of ten finalists for the Visit Britain 2019 Tourism Superstar Awards. Ant is the only finalist from Yorkshire, and he needs your vote to win!

The Visit Britain Tourism Superstar Awards is a national tourism competition presented in partnership with the Mirror newspaper. Ant was nominated by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for his unwavering dedication to the marine environment.

Sharing wildlife knowledge isn’t just a job for Ant, but a passion. We have overwhelmingly positive feedback telling us just how inspirational he is to everyone he meets. His enthusiasm and knowledge around marine wildlife is the reason why many people return again and again to our centre. He is the real heart and soul of the place.
Kirsten Carter
Living Seas manager

Ant has been manager of the Living Seas Centre, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s flagship marine education centre, since it opened in 2013, but he has been sharing the wonders of marine wildlife and running popular events and activities in Yorkshire for over ten years.

To date, 10,000 people have taken part in his beach cleans, rockpool safaris and cliff-top puffin viewings. When the ‘Beast from the East’ struck last year and devastated marine wildlife, Ant organised a beach clean with colleagues and 180 volunteers to remove 7.5 tonnes of litter.

“Ant has changed my life and I am sure that of many others. His enthusiasm, encouragement and dedication to wildlife is remarkable and infectious. He inspires and excites visitors and volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, including myself. I've even gone back to university to study British Wildlife and Conservation”

Volunteer, Living Seas Centre
