David Shiffman
Marine conservation biologist, consultant, and writer
Simon Fraser University


More people know that sharks face conservation challenges and need our help more than ever before, but much of what they “know” about shark conservation is misleading, extremist, or just factually incorrect. Interdisciplinary marine conservation biologist Dr. David Shiffman studies public knowledge and attitudes about ocean conservation, and works on the causes and consequences of misunderstandings of key issues concerning conservation threats and policy solutions. This talk will review new developments in the scientific and policy realms surrounding the conservation of threatened marine predators, and cover Dr. Shiffman’s recent work on public misunderstanding of these important issues.
