About Jackie

Jackie Hall, the Manx Basking Shark Watch Coordinator is a Marine Biologist with an MSc in Tropical Coastal Management, a BSc (hons) in Marine Biology and a BA from the OU. She was at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne 1991-2000. Having been a keen diver for 20 years she is particularly fascinated by sharks.

Jackie set up Manx Basking Shark Watch in 2005. She was extremely grateful when other volunteers and then the official Basking Shark Steering Group came on board.  They help other basking shark scientists and wildlife film crews to find and film the sharks.
