A Mission Milestone: OCEARCH Expedition Carolinas and the Search for White Sharks off North Carolina

Sharks play a critical role along our coast – but what are shark researchers hoping to learn from great white sharks tagged off North Carolina?  Join us as we learn from OCEARCH’s collaborating research team about these elusive apex predators, the role they play in balancing the ocean’s ecosystems, and how you can join OCEARCH’s efforts to address the two largest threats facing our oceans: data deficit and time.
