About Rebekah

The Story Behind the Name: This shark is a graduation gift from Luci Johnson to her granddaughter, Tatum Rebekah Nugent, who was part of the Shark Research and Conservation Program for two years as an undergraduate at the University of Miami. Tatum has always had a passion for marine conservation, and sharks in particular.

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.

This work is part of a collaboration among the Shark Research & Conservation Program at the University of Miami, Florida Gulf Coast University and West Coast Inland Navigational District, supported by Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah.
