Studying marine-life reproduction with Dr. Giselle Montano
- July 29, 2022 -
We had a great conversation with Dr. Gisele Montano in our latest Lunch With A Scientist episode. Originally from Brazil, Dr. Montano is the Director of Species Sustainability at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens.
Her research on reproductive physiology focused on sexing technology applied to frozen-thawed spermatozoa from bottlenose dolphins. Dr. Montano has collaborated on various studies in several different species such as dolphins, beluga, killer whales, penguins, elephants, rhinos and most currently sharks. She has participated in 12 Ocearch expeditions, examining white sharks in the East Coast of United States and Canada.
She dives into her research with marine animals while also giving us a glimpse into her path into her career and what challenges she faced.
