This past year was incredible. Our team spent more than 100 days on the water in research sites that spanned the globe. We conducted work in the Galapagos, South Africa, the Bahamas, in the waters near our home base of Miami, FL, and, for the first time in years, Florida Bay and the Dry Tortugas. We sampled, tagged and released over 400 sharks of 11 different species. Data generated during these trips helped advance our understanding of the biological drivers, processes, and lives of these important marine predators. Once again, our research made it onto local, national, and international media outlets. Highlights include three original programs on Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, which reached tens of millions of viewers globally. Last year we brought more than 1,200 Citizen Scientists out shark tagging, the majority of which were students. For more information, click on the photograph to the left to view our annual report.
