Asha de Vos

Blue Whale Scientist

ashadevosI am a marine biologist currently working with blue whales in the Northern Indian Ocean.I am trying to stop them getting hit and killed by large container ships.For this I do science, outreach and push for policy changes and also look for innovative tools that can help solve conservation problems of this nature.

I am also an advocate of contextualising conservation, particularly in the marine realm. Making sure people know why we need to protect the oceans and how healthy oceans means healthy us. I work with the media and do public talks to create this awareness and because I believe, the more people know, the more they care and the more responsible they feel to do something.
