Jackson Wild Summit

By October 29, 2019

MarAlliance was fortunate to take part in the Jackson Wild Summit, a convening of scientists, conservationists, story tellers and filmmakers held at the foothills of Wyoming’s Teton mountains.

We were amazed and greatly inspired by the incredible work underway by all sectors who are moving the needle to raise awareness, inspire the public and reverse declines in wildlife.

Founder Dr. Rachel Graham took part in a panel on Species on the Brink, an NSF science round table and scientists pitching stories to filmmakers. We are grateful to the team at Jackson Wild, The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) for enabling Dr. Graham to participate and learn so much from peers, reconnect with colleagues and friends of long-standing.

She is already applying what she learnt to our collective work of shark science and conservation and cannot wait to see some of the pitched documentaries become reality.
