Sustainable Shark Tourism


Rick MacPherson joins me on the podcast to talk about Marine Conservation in Small Island Communities and Sustainable Shark Tourism

Rick MacPherson joins me on the podcast to talk about Marine Conservation in Small Island Communities and Sustainable Shark Tourism. I wanted Rick on the podcast ever since I started recording the first episode. I am so glad he was able to join us to discuss how conservation is done on small island communities and how sustainable shark tourism should be conducted.

    Thanks again for inviting me, Andrew! In the interest of being factually based, I wanted to pass along two corrections that my coral reef science colleague Dr Mark Eakin was kind enough to point out:

    1) The “Obituary for the Great Barrier Reef” was by Rowan Jacobsen in Outdoor Magazine (not Andy Revkin).

    2) While the GBR bleaching was highest in the north in 2016, that area was previously naive to bleaching. Most prior GBR bleaching had been central and south. Again, local oceanography and weather patterns (multiple days/weeks with still winds and little cloud cover) dictate bleaching events.

    Just wanted to clarify on those two areas.
