The year 2020 has been tough for many reasons. COVID and the actions that led to the Social Justice change via the Black Lives Matter Movement have made 2020 a stressful year, to say the least. However, there have been some shining moments that have come out of 2020, including the formation and growth of an organization called Minorities in Shark Science (MISS).
I wanted to know more about the organization so Dr. Catherine MacDonald introduced me to one of the four founders, Carlee Jackson.
Carlee joined me on the podcast to discuss how MISS came to be and its programs; what it was like to defend her Masters during COVID; and, what it's like to work with Sharks and Sea Turtles.
This episode has it all!!! Enjoy!
