The Story Behind the Name: I began an organization in 2016 called Shark Mate in order to raise popular awareness and donation support for shark research. After coming across the work of Dr. Neil Hammerschlag, I was turned onto the “donate-a-shark” program at UM Shark Research. With a great deal of support from folks across the country, we, at Shark Mate, are ecstatic to give back to the ocean, and can’t wait to follow Mugatu.
