Anyone who’s met me will tell you that I am passionate about communicating science effectively! I want propagate a contagious excitement for marine biology among the public, so that others can feel what I and my colleagues feel when we experience extraordinary marine animals and ecosystems. My strategy is to use Open Access scientific publishing and new digital media tools to communicate science and conservation as directly and openly as possible. From 2010 to 2015 I was Associate Editor and a regular contributor to DeepSeaNews.com. I am very active on Twitter @AlistairDove and @Wheres_Domino. In September 2015 I presented at the TEDxPeachtree conference in Atlanta.
My research and conservation efforts at Georgia Aquarium have also featured in more traditional media. My whale shark research was featured for a 2011 episode of the Emmy-nominated series Ocean Mysteries with Jeff Corwin and is also the subject for a 2014 episode of the PBS series Changing Seas. My earlier research into the causes of the lobster collapse in Long Island Sound was featured in the New York Times. I have spoken about marine science issues on local and national affiliates for CBS, NBC, FOX and ABC and am a frequent contributor for marine biology issues on CNN Newsroom:
