EP24 SHARKS w/Melissa Màrquez

Treading Lightly Podcast

18-09-2020 • 1 hr 31 mins

Melissa is a marine biologist and wildlife educator with a BA (Hons) in Marine Ecology and Conservation degree from New College of Florida, USA and an MSc in Marine Biology from Victoria University of Wellington, NZ. She is a freelance environmental contributor, and founder of The Fins United Initiative (TFUI), a program that brings attention to the unusual and diverse sharks (and their relatives) of the world and their researchers.

Most people carry a fear of these animals and we tend to harbour a negative attitude toward them, mostly driven by a misunderstanding of these animals and cultural influences such as the movie Jaws that have driven the unwarranted fear of these animals.

We dove into the human psyche when it comes to sharks and how we can begin to foster a better understanding and relationship with these majestic animals and how we co-exist in their habitat!

It was a pleasure having Melissa on to share her passion and shed some light on these beautiful creatures.
