Zeb Hogan | Monday, March 5, 2018 | 5:00pm
Ecologist, Environmentalist, Star of National Geographic’s “Monster Fish”
Dr. Zeb Hogan has spent the past 20 years studying the world’s freshwater ecosystems, working to merge conservation science with conservation education and action. He is currently an assistant professor at the University of Nevada-Reno, a National Geographic Society Fellow, United Nations Convention on Migratory Species Scientific Councilor for Fish. Zeb also hosts the National Geographic television series “Monster Fish.” Zeb’s research includes contributions to understanding the migratory patterns and population status of vulnerable fish species; designation of the giant Mekong catfish as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List; and awareness-raising through international media and local communications about the plight of endangered fish species and their habitats.
Zeb’s passion for freshwater comes partially from his love, fascination, and curiosity about aquatic habitats, and partially from a recognition that freshwater fish are one of nature’s true underdogs: misunderstood, understudied, and severely threatened by human activity. He gets inspiration from the hope that we can find balance between our needs as humans and the need to preserve increasingly fragile freshwater ecosystems.
