Dr. Dan Cartamil
The ACS welcomes Dr. Dan Cartamil and his presentation, "Baja's Wild Side: Shark research & Conservation Photography on Baja California's Pacific Coast".
As a Scripps marine biologist, Dr. Dan Cartamil has traveled the Pacific coast of Baja California for over a decade, studying the region's sharks and shark fisheries. There, he discovered a fragile paradise of remote landscapes, wildlife, and cultural treasures, on the verge of being overtaken by modern civilization. Science and art converge as we take a photographic journey through western Baja California illustrated with breathtaking photography from Cartamil's new book, Baja's Wild Side.
Dr. Daniel Cartamil is an expert in shark biology at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) in La Jolla, California. Dan received his PhD from SIO in 2009, and also has a Masters degree from CSU Long Beach (2003). He has been studying sharks since 1995, and also worked extensively as a fisheries biologist in Alaska and California. When not doing research, he mountain bikes and plays music in Encinitas, California.
