About BD Bull

The Story Behind the Name: BD Bull was the first bull shark tagged by SRC. Her name is in honor of Brendal Davis, a relentless shark crusader that has been interning with the program for about a year. If you are lucky, you might get a chance to meet Brendal during one of her trips around Florida educating people about these marvelous creatures.

Satellite Tagging: BD Bull 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. The first month after being tagged, she stayed in the shallow waters of the southern Everglades. By early May, however, she had swam up to the northern stretches of the Everglades, near the airport. Please keep checking back frequently to follow BD Bull’s movements, which will be updated every few days as her satellite tag continues to send us real-time tracking data.
