About This Project

Tiger sharks are among the strangest behaving sharks in our oceans. They eat everything from turtles to car tires and continually dive up and down. However, we know next to nothing about their hunting and movement strategies. Characterizing these are important to effectively manage tiger shark populations and understand ecosystem dynamics. This project will tag up to 30 tiger sharks at Ningaloo Reef, recording video, depth and acceleration to better understand these patterns.

Blast off!
