Board. Springer adopted a shark to help support shark conservation.

journals including Environmental Biology of Fishes and
Marine Biology.

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