Lead Scientist Dr. Greg Skomal shows Joshua Morrow how the shark tracker works. OCEARCH’s Global Shark Tracker is a website where you can observe the navigational pattern of sharks that have been tagged with satellite tracking technology. For the first time researchers like Dr. Greg Skomal will be able to see in real time sharks migratory patterns, where they are breeding and giving birth. This information will help us understand sharks better and design polices to protect them.
OCEARCH tagged two sharks off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts in the past couple weeks. Check out to see where Genie and Mary Lee are right now!
