Remove any memories and images of the movie Jaws from your mind. Great White Sharks and other large predators that are the essential forces in our oceans have unfortunately been looked at as dreadful animals of the salt watered arena. That is one reason why Costa is a proud partner of OCEARCH, a group of travelers and scientists dedicated to finding what was called at one time “unreachable” data on the motions, biology and well-being of sharks. While also protecting their future at the top of the marine food chain and educating the public on these oceanic mammals.
OCEARCH is a non-profit organization with a global reach for unprecedented research on great white sharks and other large apex predators. In a collaborative environment established by Founding Chairman and Expedition Leader Chris Fischer, OCEARCH enables leading researchers and institutions to generate previously unattainable data on the movement, biology and health of sharks to protect their future while enhancing public safety and education.
Through the support of Costa and other partners, OCEARCH is able to share their collected data in near-real time with anyone around the world with the Global Shark Tracker, which is helping students and others learn alongside their PhDs in the field. Satellite tracking of other species in the future are already planned to launch, as well as more expeditions for the Shark movement. Read more about the OCEARCH organization, watch the progress they have made and find out in detail how they are mindfully helping these great predators continue to swim strong in our oceans.
