Shark Task Force
Everything you wanted to know about sharks and ocean conservation.

This time on the Shark Task Force, a special thought for 2017 from the one and only Dr. Sylvia Earle.

She talks about the special bond between Tiger Shark Expert, Jim Abernethy and a Tiger Shark he's known for more than a decade - Emma.

We've spent many days with Emma underwater over the years - and we always come back to the boat with a complete since of joy.

Plenty more to come in 2017 as we celebrate ten years of The Shark Task Force.

We also look forward to bringing you news of the US premiere of This is Your Ocean: Sharks - Part 2.

Happy New Year - and remember - why wait a whole year, for just one week on sharks?

Special thanks to Jim Abernethy, Guy Harvey and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.

The film brings back all of your favorites - including Emma the Tiger Shark, Wyland, Guy Harvey, Jim Abernethy and it's hosted by Dr. Sylvia Earle.

This is Your Ocean: Sharks - Part 2 will have it's US Premiere in early 2017.

It seems like only yesterday we jumped in the water with Oceanic Whitetip Sharks at night without a cage for the first time. It was nerve-racking at first... but then the unexpected.

Find out more in this episode of the Shark Task Force.

Remember, for the complete story of the Oceanic Whitetip Shark - check out Guy Harvey Expeditions on iTunes.

Over the years we've spent a lot of time in the water with the Oceanic Whitetip Shark. Here are two great ways to find out more about this shark - 1 - head over to GHRITracking.org (soon to be an iPhone and android app) and look at all the tracks for the oceanic.

2 - if you want to get more "in-depth" - check out Guy Harvey Expeditions - The Oceanic Whitetip Shark - right here on iTunes. It's five years of expeditions packed in to one-half hour... the $1.99 goes to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.

As you find out more about these sharks - it's incredible to think that at one time they were the most prolific animal on the planet over 100 pounds. A sad statement on overfishing.

We'll see you next time on the Shark Task Force, because, why wait a whole year, for just one week on sharks?
