Be the Star You Are! eadioAs The Washington Post’s national environmental reporter, Juliet Eilperin first slipped into the water with sharks in 2005, when she visited researchers at the Bimini Biological Laboratory (“The Shark Lab”) in the Bahamas. After becoming fascinated with these ancient creatures—as well as the new discoveries scientists have been making about how they travel, feed and reproduce—Ms. Eilperin began a worldwide pursuit of sharks and the people whose lives linked to them. When not spending time with fearsome ocean predators, Ms. Eilperin has covered issues ranging from climate change to presidential campaigns. Her environmental reporting assignments have entailed trekking on the Arctic tundra with Selma Hayek and Jake Gyllenhaal and searching on her hands and knees for rare insects in the caves of Tennessee. Ms. Eilperin has received numerous environmental honors, including the 2011 Blue Frontier Campaign-Peter Benchley Award. Demon Fish is her book. http://demonfishbook.com
