For those who love wildlife and can't get enough of shark week you might find Ocearch a site to watch. The site is a tagging and tracking project to
learn about and to teach us about the habits of sharks movements, like discovering where their nurseries might be, their mating places, etc. Already
the researchers have been surprised, as they tracked the movements of a shark named Lydia at this particular moment in time to Newfoundland, Canada.
“Based on what we know about the historical distribution of white sharks, Lydia's movements into Canadian waters are not that surprising. What does
surprise me is that she is going there this time of year when we would expect her to be moving south. This, of course, tells us that we still don't
know much about white sharks, but we are learning more very day.”
The pic below shows Lydia's journey
Although I am finding it a trifle annoying to navigate through this site, I'm sure I will get the hang of it more after my second coffee.
Tell me what you think.
