Recent observations on Little St. Simons Island led researchers to believe that our waters around the island might serve as nursery habitat for the Lemon Shark (Negaprion brevirostris). If proven, this would represent a new location known to the science of lemon shark reproductive biology. Former naturalist Andrew Lyons took this as a challenge and is conducting his thesis research on illuminating this idea.
