Marine Conservation in Action – From Direct Action in the Southern Ocean to Investigative Research in Hong Kong with Dr. Teale Phelps Bondaroff

Dr. Teale Phelps Bondaroff is a Saanich-based researcher and community organizer with a PhD in politics and international studies from the University of Cambridge. Teale is an expert on illegal fishing and works as the Director of Research for OceansAsia, a marine conservation organization based out of Hong Kong that focused on illegal fishing.

In this talk, Teale will take you on a journey, beginning with his graduate research and ending with his current marine conservation work. Teale’s PhD research studied the anti-whaling strategy of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and his fieldwork included four months sailing onboard the Bob Barker as it confronted Japanese whaling vessels in the Southern Ocean.

Teale will introduce listeners to a number of key marine conservation issues – including wildlife crime in sea cucumber, shark, seahorse, and other fisheries, organized crime and illegal fishing, and marine plastic pollution.


This will be a Virtual Club Night, on the Zoom platform.  All BCA members will receive an invitation with links to the Zoom meeting and login details.  If you are not a member (or if you did not receive the email) and would like to attend please email Dani, VI Communications Watchkeeper,  for details.
