Description

Ocearch is conducting unprecedented research on sharks in order to help scientists collect previously unattainable data in the ocean. They achieve this through research expeditions, education and media. Their research expeditions are conducted aboard the M/V OCEARCH, which serves as an at-sea laboratory. Their OCEARCH GLOBAL SHARK TRACKER demonstrates the results of their tracking research on sharks (and some turtles). They have developed an OCEARCH STEM SKILLS curriculum for students, and use multimedia to inform and educate about shark science, in support of their goal to returning the ocean ‘balance and abundance’.
