Busy month raising awareness for sharks

It’s been a busy month talking to kids about  shark and ocean Mission Shark Rescue coverconservation, my new book MISSION: SHARK RESCUE (National Geographic Children’s Books March 2016). This week Oregon Coast Aquarium’s Oceanscape Network is highlighting me as part of their S.T.E.A.M. Powered: Profiles in Science, Creativity and Exploration.

This multi-part series features five women who are at the tops of their fields in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Over the 2015-16 school year, one week will be dedicated to each person, highlighting their education, careers and innovative contributions to their various disciplines — including the discovery of new species, the exploration of hostile ecosystems and the conservation of marine species.

This week, schools are encouraged to submit students’ questions to me via the Oceanscape Network. So stop on by and send me a question.
