About Mazda

The Story Behind the Name: This shark was tagged by Mazda dealers during a recent trip to Miami. The name is fitting because, much like the shark, Mazdas are sleek and efficient.

Satellite Tagging: Mazda 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 Mazda’s movements, which will be updated every few days as her satellite tag continues to send us real-time tracking data.

Adopt-a-Shark: For information on how you can contribute to our shark conservation research by adopting and tracking your own shark, please visit our Adopt a Shark page.
