Thinking about Climate Change from the Perspective of Shark Bay

Thinking about Climate Change from the Perspective of Shark Bay

Allison Hirschlag writes for The Weather Channel, The Washington Post, Scientific American, The Guardian, Medium’s Elemental and Forge, Cosmo, Audubon, Allure, Elle, Hakai and Shondaland. She creates science-forward stories that highlight insights about weather climate change, and how they’re impacting people and the environment.

She explains, “I like to uncover the hidden history of unique places around the world, and how climate has played a part in shaping them.”

One of her recent articles onBBC Future describes the far-reaching benefits of tiger sharks for climate here. She starts her article on Shark Bay on the westernmost tip of Australia where at least 28 species of shark swim through the clear waters and undulating seagrass meadows.
