I love @CiscoBrewers for supporting @OCEARCH and the work they do for sharks.
We partnered with @CiscoBrewers to help develop Shark Tracker Light Lager, a beer that gives back to our oceans. Proceeds support our white shark research. #InternationalBeerDay #DrinkBeerDoGood #Sharks #SharkTrackerLightLager

Mature male #whiteshark Breton, who was 13ft long & weighed 1,437lbs at the time of tagging, just pinged in approximately 60 miles offshore near #MyrtleBeach, SC. After spending his June and July off of Florida, has he finally started his journey north? #FactsOverFear #sharks

Don't mistake #Sharkfest for #Sharkweek- they're different and both have lots to watch. #Sharkfest is a longer event, put on by @NatGeoTV and it's going on NOW!
Sharks are amazing, majestic creatures, but if you don't want to swim with them, you might want to avoid these locations 🦈 Catch more #SharkFest fun on #NationalGeographic, also now streaming on @disneyplus.

. You knew some sharks laid eggs, but did you expect them to look like this? Meet the Port Jackson shark from Australia! Its eggs have a screw shape so the mama shark can pick them up in her mouth and "screw" them securely into a rock crevice. MT @oceanx

We utilize 3 different tags: SPOT, PSAT, & Acoustic. These tags allow us to collect a variety of data used to better understand the movements of the white shark. Learn more about the data we receive from each tag. #ScienceBriefSunday DIVE DEEPER: ocearch.org/science-briefs/
