About Ted

The Story Behind the Name: Years before the SRC Program ever came into existence, Ted Davis was instrumental in Dr. Neil Hammerschlag’s work to connect research and outreach. As the Magnet coordinator for South Broward County, he helped high school students assist Dr. Neil in his Ph.D. research. Ted sought out grants to fund travel for those students to attend a Great White Shark research trip in South Africa with Dr. Neil. And when the South Florida Student Shark Savers Program began, South Broward became the first school to participate. Ted Davis can be called a ‘Founding Father’ of SRC, and his efforts and support are invaluable.

Those who know Ted know that he is always good for an outdoor adventure and impromptu natural history lesson. His gregarious demeanor and love for camping, fishing, and education make him the ideal mentor, friend, and visionary. We would like to thank Ted for all he has done to make this program a reality.

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