We were on this expedition and got to help with this ultrasound! It is incredible to see how much we are able to learn about great white sharks through these efforts.

This is one of the coolest things we’ve seen in a while...a white shark’s heart beating! A Veterinarian from SeaWorld captured the first images on an ultrasound machine and then we were able to find the heart again on later sharks. Expedition Nova Scotia Chief Scientist Lisa Hoopes, Ph.D from Georgia Aquarium explains why this is so exciting.

Our founder, Graham Casden, just got back from an incredible research expedition in the Galapagos Islands. The focus was on marine animal migrations and deep sea kelp forests. He was able to do several deep submarine dives exploring the islands of Isabella and Ferdinand. His co-pilot on the trip was none other than her deepness Sylvia Earle from Mission Blue!

Our love of sharks is contagious! Sharing the Truth About Sharks is so rewarding and fun for us. We used their amazing story as a hook to engage students @Boulder Prep High School in the conversation about what each of us can do to be part of the solution.
