This week, Dr Sheryl Hamilton talks to Niamh and Olly about her work researching mitigation techniques for reducing marine mammal bycatch in commercial fishing gear. She also regales us with tales of her vast experience in monitoring wild marine animal populations, including a few sneaky seabirds hiding under ground.
