Way back in August (actually, exactly 5 months ago), I gave the most important presentation of my life thus far: my dissertation defense. It was exhilarating to share my research with a wonderful audience of mentors, loved ones, and well-wishers – it meant so much to see a sea of friendly faces who had taken the time to come share this experience with me!
Of course, most of the beloved colleagues who played vitally important roles in this project were across the Pacific Ocean and thus unable to attend. So, my fantastic labmate Cotton kindly recorded the presentation using CMBC’s media equipment so that I could share this with them.
And here it is! “Conservation-scapes: An interdisciplinary approach to assessing cetacean bycatch in small-scale fisheries.”
