Tagging the Endangered Oceanic White Tip Shark from Alan Alda Center on Vimeo.

Important research efforts captured in a video filmed in the Bahamas.

From the Alan Alda Center:

“(Video courtesy of Sean Williams)
-In April and May of 2014, a team of scientists and shark conservationists took part in a research expedition in the Bahamian Shark Sanctuary. Marine scientists, Demian Chapman and Debra Abercrombie, helped tag the oceanic white tip shark. The creature is threatened by the illegal shark fin trade and tagging the animal will track its long-distance travels in an effort to protect it.”
