In This Episode...
The crew speaks with a hero in the conservation world, Dr. Dante Fenolio. Dr. Fenolio is an extremely accomplished underwater photographer, PhD and educator. He is also the author of “Life in the Dark,” and runs the Department of Conservation & Research for the San Antonio Zoo. We are thrilled to hear from someone who has had such amazing experiences and has done such incredible work.
The San Antonio Zoo has been a key partner in the DEEPEND Project examining the impact of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Dr. Fenolio is also responsible for a number of global conservation projects ranging from the Amazon, to China to Japan much of which is directly related to underwater research that heavily utilizes underwater photography. The San Antonio Zoo works with state and federal wildlife authorities here in the US to perform bio-inventory work in subterranean habitats.
