Born and raised in Stratford, Ontario, Jarrett has always felt a deep connection to the ocean, despite growing up around fresh water. Although Jarrett has a passion for all terrestrial and marine species, overtime, his fascination and long-time dedication has encompassed sharks. As an avid SCUBA and Freediver, Jarrett has had the opportunity to dive with multiple species of shark; an experience that has helped him to overcome a childhood fear of these animals and changing his perspective of sharks altogether. His passion for sharks also inspired him to travel to Bimini, Bahamas to volunteer at the Bimini Biological Field Station (BBFS). Dedicated to conserve the ocean and sharks, Jarrett returned to university and, recently, has completed a Masters of Resource and Environmental Management at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia. Since then, he has pursued his passion of marine conservation, more specifically in shark conservation, by taking a position as Project Coordinator - Shark, at WWF-Canada.
