I am a shark conservation biologist and science communicator. I love learning about sharks, and teaching others about sharks through social media, writing (for my blog as well as outlets like the Washington Post and Scientific American,) Skyping into classrooms all over North America, and in-person public lectures. Your support through Patreon will allow me to write about even more new shark research, much of which isn't covered in any other media outlets! Thanks for all your support!

Goals
$171 of $500 per month
If I reach $500 per month in Patreon support, I'll be able to write one in-depth summary blog post each month. These posts are used to provide a thorough introduction to an entire scientific discipline or subdiscipline, or a thorough introduction to a conservation issue.
