Crowdfunding Campaign Underway to Study Hammerhead Shark Nursery

-

Scientists are studying the first known nursery area for hammerhead sharks in the United States, and are conducting a crowdfunding campaign to pay for it.

According to the project description:

“Great hammerhead sharks were recently assessed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN Red List. Our research team at Field School, an inclusive marine science training program, has discovered critical habitat used by babies and juveniles. And this nursery area is right off of downtown Miami, some of the most highly impacted waters in the United States! What are they doing there? What threats do they face? This project will help us to gather data to help protect this vital site.”
