Tracking Great White Sharks: Inspired Boy Becomes a Global Explorer

Chris Fischer and Great White Shark

What drives a young boy who loves the water to become a global explorer working with great white sharks? Join us as Chris Fischer, who along with his nonprofit has been featured in more than 10,000 media stories and 200 TV episodes on three networks, talks about what inspired him to help great white sharks and other apex ocean predators. You will experience a multimedia journey that begins in Fischer's earliest days with his team learning to capture and safely release a 5,000-pound shark in order to provide scientists with otherwise unattainable, hands-on access to these amazing creatures to help ensure their future—and that of the ocean.
