Dr. Gordon Hubbell

Zoo Veterinarian & Shark Expert

On this episode we will hear from Dr. Gordon Hubbell, a retired Zoo veterinarian and expert in shark paleontology. Dr. Hubbell was attracted to a career as a zoo vet because he thrived in the unpredictable nature of the job. He will share stories of situations where he had to quickly improvise: such as saving the life of a rare snow leopard and racing to capture three escaped hyenas before children began walking to school in the morning.

When Dr. Hubbell retired from zoo life, he followed his passion for sharks and became a well-known shark expert who has been featured on several TV programs: including Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. Dr. Hubbell will conclude by giving us advice on how to become a respected expert in something without formal training in that field.
