OCEARCH is doing incredible work with efforts to aid researchers in learning more about sharks and consequently protecting critical ecosystems.

From OCEARCH:

“This 7.6 ft male shark was the 2nd tiger shark tagged during Expedition Jacksonville. Viper is named in honor of the Space Coast Junior / Senior High School in Cocoa, Florida who drove two hours to visit the ship in Jacksonville Florida! We are inspired by the teachers and students passion for the ocean!”
