#116 | Saving Sharks through Science & Community-Based Tourism with Frida Lara, PhD

We are in the heart of our Women in Conservation Science series and today’s conversation is as heartwarming as it is educational. In this episode, we are sitting down with Frida Lara, PhD, shark expert, tour guide, and Co-Founder of Orgcas. Frida and I have such a delightful conversation about the different types of research she performed in her early years as a marine biologist, how she became a shark researcher, what she discovered studying Galapagos sharks and silky sharks, how the NGO, Orgcas, came to be and her role within the organization, the difference between artisanal and commercial shark hunting, the power of community-based tourism for ocean conservation, and a truly wild encounter with a tiger shark that you won’t want to miss.
