Shark Days

Field Studies

Many shark species rely on coastal waters for the role they provide as nursery habitat. Georgia’s coast has been consistently studied as a pupping ground since the late 1990s; However, there is still much to uncover about the lives and movements of the nearly a dozen shark species which inhabit this region. Further research is important to better understand and protect these creatures.

Observations on Little St. Simons Island have led researchers to discover that the surrounding waters are a nursery for the Lemon Shark (Negaprion brevirostris) and other species. Join us for Shark Days to help biologists catch, tag, and release sharks for long term monitoring studies, and learn about the species which call the Atlantic coast home through special activities and presentations.
