So one of my stories is getting a lot of attention: Dying for sea cucumbers.
This and another SRI fellow’s story had the most hits on anything that ran on Mongabay that month.
Links to it everywhere! Below is my favorite because Mike used the word “reportage”.
The Best Shark Dive in the World!: White Teatfish in Fiji – brilliant Reportage!
The Fiji TImes is also interested in running a shorter version of the story- after all, it’s Fijians who should be reading this.
And on an exciting note, the NPR affiliate in Santa Monica, KCRW is interviewing me next week to do a 7 minute radio story on the sea cucumber’s biology, ecology and conservation. It’s called Good Food. The one question I can’t answer is: “what do they taste like?”
Many I have spoken to had not even heard of sea cucumbers. Of course, I knew about them, but didn’t know the extent of the trade or their consumption. So we are all learning. And that is what this career is all about.
