Melissa Marquez joins us on the podcast today to really ignite the show. We talk about shark conservation, women in science, science communication and entrepreneurship in the Marine Science and Conservation Field.
We talk about how Melissa started a shark education organization, called The Fins United Initiative, during an undergraduate course, which expanded into 50 states and got transplanted to multiple countries; how she and her husband moved across the world to New Zealand to do a Masters degree to study deep sea sharks, rays and chimeras; how she overcame challenges as a minority woman in science; and, how she merged her shark research and women and science challenges into a TEDx Wellington talk that rocked the house!!!
This is a must listen podcast!!!
