Pacific Shark Conservation Titans Collide


I ran into the voice of American Samoa shark conservation, Joe 'J-Smooth' Iosua, at the Pacific Islands Forum this morning! Joe voiced the Shark Defender public service announcements and was one of the campaign managers that led to the 2012 protection of all sharks in American Samoa.

This is the first time Joe and I have met, although we've done work together for almost two years.

Representing the Pacific
Bringing the Gangnam Style
It's great to see so many shark conservation leaders here this week, including Minister Tony deBrum, Stefanie Brendl, Luke Warwick, Henry Puna, and Willy Kostka.

Oh, and Joe is also the genius behind American Samoa Gangnam Style.  That's the true reason I wanted to meet him.
