Marine Research Funded By Shark Adoptions

Tuesday 17th, May 2011 / 08:51 Published by

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.
