About Rose

The Story Behind the Name: Our second tagged bull shark
was named after the Assistant Dean of Advancement at RSMAS,
Rose. She helps to generate the funding needed to keep the
Dunlap Program growing, developing strong relationships with
potential donors. We don’t know what we would do without

Satellite Tagging: Rose 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. She seems to be enjoying the waters of
Biscayne Bay this summer, but please keep checking back
frequently to follow Rose’s movements, which will be
updated every few days as her satellite tag continues to send
us real-time tracking data.
