Why Protecting Sharks = Protecting the Ocean.

We are excited to welcome Dr. Iris Ziegler, Head of International Cooperation at SharkProject International, to the REEF Roundup Podcast. Dr. Iris is a natural scientist, and an expert on sustainable, ecosystem-compatible fisheries and ocean risk management. Dr. Iris is also a voting member of the IUCN, which decides which species need to be protected globally. She engages in international lobbying and cooperation with other NGOs and working groups at the EU and around the world, and is a huge advocate and voice in the highest policy levels, pushing for further protections for sharks in particular and the health of the ocean generally.
