Every July we focus on “Plastic Free July” to support our oceans and all the creatures that inhabit it. We ask that you join us and join the All Creatures Podcast team at https://plasticfree.ecochallenge.org/.
Join us to help and learn more how you can make an impact on conserving our oceans. To get started we are thrilled to be interviewing Dr. Yannis Papastamatiou who is a shark scientist featured in this year’s Shark Fest on National Geographic. Yannis has also been featured on National Geographic in When Sharks Attack 360 and Sharkcano: Hawaii. He is an Associate Professor at Florida International University (FIU) in the Department of Biological Sciences. He earned his B.S. in Oceanography from University of Southampton, M.S. from California State University, and Ph.D. from the University of Hawaii. Credited in countless publications and on networks like National Geographic and BBC, he has made big strides in the shark research community.
