High-res Shark Conservation Module for Zoox
Last week the team and I ran through the new shark conservation module I wrote as one of the Zoox Training Modules. Not only is shark conservation a major sector in the marine conservation industry, but it also serves as a great case study to examine how international policy trickles down to national and grass roots levels. On top of that we run through the opportunities and challenges that ecotourism presents as an alternative to direct exploitation. 
Good, geeky times!
