I’m Amanda Flannery. I’m in my final year of my Master’s work in Conservation Biology with Miami University’s Advanced Inquiry Program. My work is focused on inspiring elasmobranchii conservation action in others through education and personal connection.
I began this blog as my EcoSpot project in a course: Biology in the Age of Technology, with the aim of examining, educating, and conversing about declining global elasmobranch populations due to anthropogenic influences. What began as an 8 part blog series became a platform for community outreach and exploration for my Master’s work.
Join me on this journey. Learn about all these amazing creatures, and perhaps even learn to love them, even if you’ve never seen the ocean before! Most importantly, find how you can get involved in the fight to save our sharks!
