Jasmin Graham - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Jasmin Graham

Join Jasmin Graham to learn about some of the most bizarre sharks and rays we have here in Florida. You'll learn about the evolution and ecology of hammerhead sharks and the smalltooth sawfish. You'll also learn about new, cutting edge technology being used to study these amazing creatures and hear about Jasmin's journey to shark science.

Jasmin Graham is a shark scientist and environmental educator who specializes in elasmobranch (shark and ray) ecology and evolution. Her research interests include smalltooth sawfish movement ecology and hammerhead shark phylogeny. Jasmin has a passion for science education and making science more accessible to everyone. She is project coordinator for the MarSci-LACE project, which is focused on researching and promoting best practices to recruit, support and retain minority students in marine science. Jasmin is the CEO of Minorities in Shark Sciences, an organization dedicated to supporting women of color in shark sciences. She is excited to help open doors for more underrepresented minority students to join the exciting field of marine science. Jasmin’s work encompasses the areas of science communication, social justice, outreach, education and conservation. She cares deeply about protecting endangered and vulnerable marine species, particularly elasmobranchs. She works in collaboration with Havenworth Coastal Conservation to study movements of elasmobranchs in Sarasota Bay.

Sara P. Grady - Ancient Blue Bloods - Biology and Ecology of Horseshoe Crabs

Sara GradyHorseshoe crabs are unique and prehistoric creatures whose populations have declined over the past few decades due to overharvest for bait. Come learn how they are not really crabs at all, how their blue blood helps keep us all safe from infection, their shift from a bad reputation for eating clams to a good reputation for aerating our mudflats, and what state and federal fisheries management are doing to try to monitor and protect them.

Sara P. Grady, Ph.D. is the South Shore Regional Coordinator for the Massachusetts Bays National Estuary Program and Watershed Ecologist at the North and South Rivers Watershed Association in Norwell, MA. She received her Bachelor of Science in Aquatic Biology from Brown University in 2001 and spent her junior year participating in Northeastern's East/West Marine Biology Program (now Three Seas). She earned her Ph.D. in Biology from the Boston University Marine Program in Woods Hole in 2006 with a dissertation on horseshoe crab population ecology on Cape Cod. Her specialties include coastal and estuarine ecology, invertebrate zoology, and ecological restoration.
