212 - Starting a Nonprofit to Continue California White Shark Monitoring with Dr. Paul Kanive
This week Kadie chats with Dr. Paul Kanive, the president of the California White Shark Project. Paul has been studying white sharks since 2008, when he volunteered to assist with field operations on the Tagging of Pacific Pelagics (TOPP) project. In 2009, he began his graduate studies, focusing on modeling and estimating white shark population parameters at Montana State University in Bozeman. After earning a Master’s degree in Fish and Wildlife Management in 2015, he continued his work on white shark population dynamics, earning a Doctorate degree in Fish and Wildlife Biology in 2020. Tune in to hear about the history of white shark monitoring efforts off the coast of California, some cool white shark facts, and why the California White Shark Project came into existence last year!
If you would like to get in touch with Paul you can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
