Conservation Biologist
Marine Wildlife Response

Engaged in research projects to reduce incidences of marine wildlife interactions with recreational fishing and ecotourism activity. Primary current focus involves testing mitigation techniques that sport anglers can employ to discourage dolphins from depredating fish off hooks, and from scavenging on fish that anglers are required to release for conservation.
