On the 1st episode of this special series of podcasts, I interview Michael Bear, Director of Citizen Science at Ocean Sanctuaries, who as an avid SCUBA diver in San Diego, Califonia started a Citizen Science program for other divers to monitor the presence of sevengill sharks.

Michael himself recounts in his interview his first encounter with a sevengill shark (his sotory is quite amazing!).”
