Also known as the Green-backed Stingaree, Urolophus viridis calls Australian waters home... and only Australian waters. Yup, it's endemic! Preferring the continental shelf and upper slope of southeastern Australia, they are largely unknown.
We are excited to sit down with Gail Schwieterman and talk about her journey in the marine sciences. Dive on in to the latest "Behind the Fins" interview.
Readers, this may be my favorite "Behind the Fins" interview because of who the interviewee is. Dr. Catherine Boisvert is a role model, mentor, advisor, and friend. She is someone I will be joining on a boat at the end of next year to go to Antarctica, braving the cold and remote environment. She does fascinating work in evodevo (don't worry, she tells you what that is) and I am so lucky to have her to turn to advice for... well, life. I am so excited for you to get to know this amazing woman, so please enjoy this interview as much as I did.
TFUI Founder Melissa C. Marquez is author of all animal bios and "Behind the Fins" segments.
