About Finley

The Story Behind the Name: The Lovett School 7th grade students explored sharks through multiple scopes during a cross-curricular “Sharkweek unit.” Designed to understand the importance of sharks to human survival, class activities and materials were dedicated to illustrate the importance of these species in our world’s ecosystems and how to minimize anthropogenic impacts to these fish. Over the course of a week, students developed empathy and took action by writing letters to stakeholders who could impact the conservation of these species both on the small and large scale fisheries. At the request of the students, the administration of Lovett approved a donation to the University of Miami RSMAS, therefore funding a satellite tag for Finley!
