As scientists we have a responsibility to speak out for the protection of sharks, in the international media, to spread awareness and share our expert knowledge with the public. We often appear in major international newspapers and magazines, and take any opportunity to speak out for sharks on TV and radio. Please take the time to view and share our media appearances.
