The second webinar from our SARRI Expert Webinar series is coming up on 25 October. The session will focus on interdisciplinary approaches for understanding and managing shark and ray fisheries and will be led by Dr. Hollie Booth (University of Oxford; Human Dimensions Working Group, IUCN SSC Shark Specialist Group). Dr. Booth will present methods and findings of her PhD research, which can help to devise management strategies for reducing the mortality of endangered sharks and rays as part of a recovery plan, whilst also considering the income and well-being of coastal communities.
Please join us on Zoom to learn more on Tuesday, 25th October at 8.00am GMT (4am Sao Paulo, 9am Rome, 11am Dubai, 2pm Jakarta, 3pm Hong Kong, 5pm Port Moresby). The webinar will last roughly an hour.
Dr. Booth has over 6 years of experience working on shark and ray conservation in Indonesia and the Southeast Asia Archipelago, and recently completed her DPhil at the University of Oxford on ‘Interdisciplinary Approaches to Shark & Ray Conservation’, with a particular focus on small-scale fisheries in Indonesia. She will be presenting on her methods and findings, which can help to devise management strategies for reducing mortality of endangered sharks and rays, whilst also considering the income and well-being of coastal communities. Prior to working in Indonesia, Dr. Booth worked on protected area management and community-based tourism in East Africa, and environmental policy in Cambridge, UK. She also holds an MSc in Conservation Science from Imperial College London, and a BA in Natural Sciences and Management Studies from University of Cambridge.

Preventing extinctions has been a primary aim of shark and ray conservation for decades, but the numbers don’t lie. These efforts haven’t kept pace with the threats. We all need to raise our level of ambition if we want to reverse the tragic loss of biodiversity in our ocean. More efforts are needed to actively recover depleted populations for the benefit of our ocean and people who depend on it.
