About David Shiffman, Ph.D.

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! 
$102.79 of $200 per month
If I reach $200 per month in Patreon support, I'll be able to write one extra short (250-500 word) news-based blog post a month. These posts are used to highlight new scientific papers or current conservation issues that otherwise don't get media coverage.
