Meanwhile, the impacts of illegal and unfair labor practices and unsustainable fishing and aquaculture activities are felt by everyone, particularly those from under-represented and under-resourced regions.

Seventeen named storms struck the greater Caribbean region in 2017—wreaking havoc on human communities and natural resources alike. So many families lost loved ones, their livelihoods, and their homes—it is hard to measure the magnitude of the emotional effects even as we strive to address what we can measure. At the one year mark of the recovery from Hurricane Maria’s devastating impact on St. Croix, Puerto Rico, and other American islands, we know that it may be decades before the human communities and natural resources fully recover.

During the summer of 2016, while many of my friends had desk jobs in big cities, traveled to the beach for long weekends, and got their shark thrills via “Shark Week” every summer, I decided to stick to being in school and traded in a desk for the lab. While “Shark Week” is less of a train wreck than it used to be, I prefer real life sharks and real science to the often sensationalized television or movie programs concerning sharks. I’ve focused on sharks for the last few years, working at a shark lab in the Bahamas, and then continuing on to graduate school at Duke University.
