Our guest for this episode of The WeWhale Pod is marine biologist and science communicator Áine-lisa Shannon.

Amongst the topics, Áine-lisa talks about how she connected with the ocean growing up in the West of Ireland and how there has definitely been a lot more public awareness of ocean sustainability and cetaceans in the last few years. And why you’ll always find her by the sea, whether that’s scuba diving, kayaking, surfing (which she says she isn’t great at but enjoys!) or just reading a book.

You can find out more about Áine-lisa’s work on her Instagram page. Thanks to Skalaa Music for post-production.
