Monni and guests explore a new era of shark conservation, focusing on protecting the lesser-known ‘flat sharks’ and rays, such as sawfishes, angel sharks, wedgefishes stingrays and guitar sharks.

Find out what mermaids’ purses tell us about the current distribution of these flat sharks, which include angel sharks living in the Canary Islands and around Welsh coast.
