Marine Research Funded By Shark Adoptions
Scientists at the University of Miami are letting people adopt sharks to help fund their research.
No one gets to take one of the toothy predators home. But a $2,000 donation buys naming rights, a satellite tag and the opportunity to track a shark in real time on the Internet for up to a year.
The year-old program has tracked 20 bull, hammerhead and tiger sharks in the waters off the Florida Keys, South Florida and the Bahamas.educational, environment, marine, sharks
