They may not be cute and cuddly, but sharks add beauty and diversity to our planet’s oceans. Many populations of sharks are in great decline and need immediate scientific and conservation attention. However, researching these apex predators is neither easy nor cheap. To ensure SRC’s satellite tracking study of sharks continues, please consider adopting a shark!
A $3,000 donation will cover the cost of one new satellite tag. In return, you will be given the opportunity to name your shark and follow his/her movements on our website using an interactive Google Earth map.
Classes and entire schools are also welcome to collectively adopt sharks. What a way to enrich your educational experience!
