Dr. Rachel Graham had what she calls her “Aha Moment” when she met a 22-foot long whale shark underwater for the first time. “If that doesn’t make you think about a change of lifestyle and work, nothing will,” she says. Rachel Graham works to save sharks and rays in the Gulf and Caribbean Sharks and Rays Program. She is based in Belize, and her conservation work extends to Mexico, Honduras, Cuba and Pohnpei (Micronesia.) including some work on our own Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary.
