Saving Sharks with Sophi – Blog 2 – Discovering the Oceans & Shark Research

I went on my first adventure to the ocean when I was 4.  I went on my Uncle Curt’s boat and caught my very own fish.  Then, my Uncle Curt caught a shark!  When I saw it, I started to fall in love with sharks.

I thought the ocean was beautiful – you would look out at this amazing place and see a whole world to explore.

I started to study sharks for a long time then and I got surprised with a research trip from my Uncle Curt, Auntie Kelli and Dr. Hammerschlag in April.  It was the best day of my life!  I met a hammerhead which was my dream.  I met other kinds of sharks too.

I took lots of notes on the boat.  I learned that the lemon shark goes to lay their babies at the same spot every time.  The baby sharks come out of their mother’s tummy tail first.  I learned that there is a dance called the hammerhead.  I made up a bull shark and lemon shark dance too!

    Hi Sophi! I’m your grandma Sandy’s cousin from Seattle. We met at her house a week or two ago at a family party. I love your shark blog and reading about all your adventures. It’s so cool that you got to go on the research ship and learn about sharks up close and personal!
