Today a chat with shark scientist and marine biologist Riley Elliott. I came out of this one so so pumped up, he’s got to be one of the most passionate and tactical marine conservationists around today. Riley is one of few modern day ambassadors, who communicate science through social media using stimulating visual imagery.
Riley has played a massive part in ending the Western Australia shark cull and the ban of shark finning in New Zealand. In this episode we talk about how Riley got started in Marine Biology, his time studying in South Africa watching the Great Whites poach seals all day and then surfing in the same waters that evening, his formula to invoke change in policies, and just life in general. I had so much fun chatting with him and have massive massive respect for the marine conservation work he and his team have done.
