WhySharksMatter is going to Cairns, Australia!

Later this week, I’m headed to the land down under to attend Sharks International, a once-a-decade shark science conference. Scientists from six continents and dozens of countries will be presenting their research on sharks, rays, skates, and chimeras. This will be the first time I’ve presented my own research at any scientific conference. I’ll try my best to blog about the conference as it occurs, but with all the science going on (and the availability of Australian beer) I may not have a lot of time. If you don’t hear from me for a while, you can rest assured that I’ll be returning with some great material for future Southern Fried Science posts. Also, Charlie is coming with me as part of the ongoing “Charlie and the Adventure” series.

If any of our readers will be attending the conference, I’m presenting on Thursday, June 10th at 11:00 a.m. in the Crystal Twig room. We always love meeting our readers in person.
