NBC TV Reports on Mote BP Expedition

The Research Vessel Weatherbird II and her Crew Carried us Deep into the Gulf

Related to the last post, this is the TV broadcast segment from NBC. Our thanks to Reporter, Jackie Barron and Videographer, Jim Hocket for helping us share our experience, as part of this important story. In this news piece, you'll see just some of the footage we shot during this recent expedition.

My partner and brother, Brooks, and I welcomed the challenge to fill a dual role as science party crew members and cameramen / producers. More to come about this extensive, ongoing project. In the meantime, suffice it to say, it was an honor working alongside some of the best in the world in shark and marine science and research. These are dedicated people doing important and often dangerous work. Now we get the chance to share not only those images, but the compelling and important stories behind them.
