To teach us about whales and dolphins in the Mediterranean Sea, today we are sitting down with Aylin Akkaya, PhD, Director of Marine Mammals Research Association (DMAD), Marine Mammal Consultant of WWF-Turkey, and Research Director of Montenegro Dolphin Research (MDR). Aylin and I have a fantastic time discussing her love for nature as a childhood, stories about her research abroad, everything cetaceans are facing in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, what it’s been like for her as the first Turkish woman biologist pursuing this work, how we can help save and protect cetaceans while visiting the Mediterranean Sea, and her hopes for the future.
