Learn about shark tracking research by joining our friends at the Oregon Coast Aquarium’s Oceanscape Network (ON) from August 28 to September 1, 2017, for “Tracking Sharks on the Great Barrier Reef.” The feature will highlight the research of Dr. Michelle Heupel, a pioneer in the acoustic tracking of sharks and rays. Dr. Heupel’s studies on the movements of large predators are helping Australian scientists create better management plans to protect these often imperiled species, while assessing how changing ocean conditions are affecting their life-cycles. The program is free and will consist of daily blogs, videos, downloadable items and more. This program is hosted exclusively on the Oceanscape Network website.
