Sharks Summer 2018

Sharks Summer

Hello. Below are the photos, videos, and activities that go with or are related to the Seamail topic. You can pick and choose, mix and match the Seamails, photos, activities, videos..etc. how ever you would like to use them with your class. Please review the videos to be sure to review the videos to be sure the footage is appropriate for the age group. We tried to find videos that most classes can use, however, when talking conservation many videos include clips/photos of dead sharks or fins illegally removed — which might be distressing to younger students.

    • As the #WhiteSharkVoyage recovers more pop-up satellite archival tags, researchers are able to piece together a better picture of how the sharks are behaving here. For example, the diving behavior of males and females are very different: males are diving up and down on the order of 120 times a day! However, the females are diving in a diel vertical migration – up to shallow water at night, then during the day to the 200-400 meter range.
