My name is Christopher Bird and I am a Marine Zoologist from the UK. I have a first class B.Sc Hons in Zoology and am currently studying a Master of Research in Marine Biology.
For as long as I can remember sharks have been my passion. It started with a fascination of this hugely diverse group of fish but soon turned to concern that not everyone shared my admiration for them. The discovery of shark finning operations, fishing by catch and a general misunderstanding, not only deeply disgusted me, but gave me the passion to pursue a career in better understanding these wonderful animals.
Years of reading, travelling and research has lead me to this point. I want to document the trips I take, the things i learn and the thoughts I have. I would like to share my concern with others in a hope to educate and inspire. My aim is to provide weekly updates on shark research, conservation issues and general public awareness.
Im new to this whole blogging and public writing world but I hope you find my entries both interesting and informative.
