From Afternoons, 1:29 pm on 3 August 2018

Last year we spoke to young marine biologist Melissa Marquez about her thesis on sharks, skates, rays and chimaeras

Since then she has left Wellington and gone onto some great things, including working with the Discovery Channel on Shark Week, doing a TED talk and working on a book

She also hit the headlines after she had a dramatic encounter with a 10 foot crocodile while filming hammerhead sharks in Cuba.
