About Cash

The Story Behind the Name:
A very special and thoughtful grandmother, Bonnie Wheaton, decided
to adopt a shark for her grandson’s birthday present. The
birthday boy, Will Wanzenberg, decided to call his shark Cash,
and tells us that he has a “huge appetite, is very active
and intelligent, and loves to explore the marine world.”

We greatly appreciated their donation, and look forward to seeing
the exciting tracks that Cash sends to us via his new satellite
tag. If you also would like to adopt a shark, please visit our
Adopt a Shark page.

Satellite Tagging:
Cash was carefully tagged with the latest in satellite tag
technology providing us with one of the first opportunities to
follow the long term movements of these threatened species. He
has already explored both the bay and reef sides of the Keys.
Please keep checking back frequently to follow Cash’s movements,
which will be updated every few days as his satellite tag continues
to send us real-time tracking data.
