About Aldonza

The Story Behind the Name:
Sergio Garcia Desplat is the adoptive sponsor of Aldonza the shark. The name Aldonza is based upon a Spanish queen.

Satellite Tagging:
Aldonza was carefully tagged with the latest in satellite tag
technology providing us with the first opportunity to follow the long
term movements of these threatened species. Please keep checking back
frequently to follow Aldonza’s movements, which will be updated
every few days as her satellite tag continues to send us real-time
tracking data.
