“This research cruise is actually a beginning in which we are going to go out, offer the opportunity for policy changes that protect a region that no one would think about needs protection for white sharks. Through new knowledge we can reduce ignorance and then translate that into into action.”
Dr Block has been thinking about this expedition for over a decade. With three years of intense planning coming into fruition over the past month, there is a lot to be covered in the #WhiteSharkVoyage wrap-up video. Take the time to watch all the way through: it is an amazing display of beautiful lifeforms, driven researchers, and surprising results.
