Ret Talbot is an award-winning independent journalist and writer who covers ocean issues and animals at the intersection of science and sustainability.

Chasing Shadows Book coverAbout the book:

A collaboration between a scientist and a science writer, Chasing Shadows is the remarkable story of the resurgence of the white shark population in the western North Atlantic told largely through the eyes of the shark biologist who found himself in the middle of it. At its heart, it is a too rare conservation success story about restoring an apex predator to an ecosystem. Illustrations and maps by scientific illustrator Karen Talbot.
