There is nowhere Melissa would rather be than making observations outside in nature. For her, the ocean holds her curiosity and passion. She was born with an extreme fascination for misunderstood predators and sharks are the most misunderstood predator of them all.
She is actively engaged in research, exploration, communication, and application of scientific knowledge related to the conservation of marine ecosystems. Please examine the tabs above to learn more about her professional experience.
