Shark Science for Everybody

My name is Sophie Maycock and I am wildly passionate about sharks.
During my studies, I realised that the communication to the public regarding shark science is pretty dismal...  Most people only hear about sharks in the news in regards to fatal attacks on humans.
But there is a whole world of fascinating scientific research being done on these incredible animals.
If you do not have access to scientific journals or just find them boring and too wordy, my hope is that this blog can help you to keep up-to-date regarding the most recent discoveries about sharks!
