Shark Guardian affiliated Researchers and Scientists

We are very happy to have 2 researchers onboard with Shark Guardian that we are closely linked with. They are both called Christine (which can sometimes be a little confusing). Researchers and scientists are vital for collecting information and data about sharks for the purposes of conservation. Through these projects we hope to achieve a greater understanding about certain species of sharks and enable us to better protect them. Shark Guardian presentations and educational programs are always updated with the most recent research and developments regarding sharks world wide.

Projects

 Shark Guardian Contributors

At Shark Guardian one of our largest projects is giving educational presentations about sharks and marine life. In doing so we have relied on many different people and organizations for their media and material support. We work and communicate closely with our contributors and would like to recognize them here.
