Spy on your favorite Tiger, Hammerhead, and Bull sharks in our custom-designed Google Earth interactive map.
Explore dozens of satellite tracks by selecting a species and individual shark in the navigation bar to the right.
These shark satellite tracks are part of an ongoing research project by RJD scientists to better understand the migratory routes and residency patterns of Tiger, Hammerhead, and Bull sharks in the subtropical Atlantic. To learn more, explore the detailed research page: GPS for Sharks.
ADOPT A SHARK
They may not be cute and cuddly, but sharks add beauty and diversity to our planet’s oceans. Their populations are in great decline, and researching these apex predators is neither easy nor cheap. To ensure RJD’s satellite tracking study of sharks continues, adopt a shark!
A tax-deductible $2,500 donation will cover the cost of one new SPOT tag. In return, you will be given the opportunity to name your shark and follow his/her movements on our website using Google Earth.
Classes and entire schools are also welcome to collectively adopt sharks. What a way to enrich your educational experience!
