In addition to his shark expeditions, Chris has also used his experience and position to help study and conserve this vulnerable species of shark. He has cataloged over 5500 predatory events during his time at Seal Island which has created the largest database of it’s kind. He has also co-authored four scientific papers on predatory behavior and has authored his own book on White Sharks titled “Great White and The Majesty of Sharks.”
Chris helps further ocean conservation by working with the Shark Research Team to collect data on white sharks, organize research excursions and by documenting them on film. He works with Dr. Neil Hammerschlag from the University of Miami by sending data year round on white shark populations and behavior and has even collaborated on research papers with Dr. Hammerschlag. One such project was the investigation of white sharks scavenging on whale carcasses. Overall, SRC is grateful for the time and energy Chris Fallows puts into shark conservation.
