Riley Elliott Brand Ambassador Profile


Social Networks

Riley Elliott is one of New Zealand’s premier science ambassadors. It is his mission in life to communicate the wonders of the underwater world to his more than 40,000 social media followers. Riley is a shark scientist, documentary maker and marine advocate – all of which he manages while working towards his PhD! Through his Instagram, Riley captures stimulating imagery of marine life to encourage exploration, understanding, education, and most importantly conservation. It’s no surprise, then, that Riley prefers to live his life outdoors, if not underwater – even after coming face to face with a shark and being attacked! Despite that close encounter, Riley still maintains his love of the natural world and the creatures that inhabit it. Not just a great story teller, but a scientist with genuine insight, Riley is an entertaining, informative and passionate campaigner for our environment.
