Join us for a lecture and presentation by Scripps marine biologist, Dr. Daniel Cartamil.

There, he discovered a fragile paradise of remote landscapes, wildlife, and cultural treasures, on the verge of being overtaken by modern civilization.

More About Dr. Cartamil

Daniel Cartamil, PhD, is an expert in shark biology at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California.

His passion for the natural world has led him to over a decade of photographing Baja California's untamed wilderness, particularly the Pacific Coast Region where he conducts research to protect migrating sharks from overfishing.

His photography has been published in a book, "Baja's Wild Side: A Photographic Journey Through Baja California’s Pacific Coast Region," which can be found on Amazon.
