Meet Mr. Chris McCartney

Mr. Chris McCartney

Chris has spent half of his working life in conservation as a terrestrial ecologist and the other half in education and academia but with a lot of overlap between the two.

This involved environmental education whilst in conservation, and in education while lecturing ecology, physiology and marine biology at Nelson Mandela University and in upskilling teachers. He is currently employed by the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists as the Provincial Coordinator for the Northern Cape.

He loves designing and making things, including models and educational toys for explaining scientific concepts.
