This week we present two stories of people struggling with what the “right” thing to do is.
Part 1: Catherine Macdonald always wanted to study sharks, but her first time tagging them in the field doesn't go as planned.
Part 2: When Michelle Tong visits home after her first semester of medical school, a stranger presents an ethical dilemma.
Dr. Catherine Macdonald is co-founder and Director of Field School (www.getintothefield.com), a marine science training and education company dedicated to constantly improving field research practices while teaching students to perform hands-on research with sharks. She is also a part-time Lecturer in Marine Conservation Biology at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
