For our second social in September, Ocean First Divers will host Dr. Alex Antoniou from the Shark Research Institute. Alex has led SRI field expeditions and filmed whale sharks in the Bay Islands (Honduras), Galapagos Islands (Ecuador), LaPaz (Mexico) and Cocos Island (Costa Rica), and Thailand, conducting both visual ID and satellite tagging of whale sharks. In October 1999, his presentation of SRI?s work in Honduras and quantifying the value of the species to the local economy directly resulted in protection of whale sharks in Honduran waters. Alex will also discuss his work tagging Great White sharks off of Isla Guadelupe in Mexico. Come find out how you can get involved in the important research project!
