Aliwal Shoal is a place that is very special to the Shark Angels. And, we've long believed in the power of citizen science as a means of contributing to conservation. We are thrilled that Shark Angel Jess Vyvyan-Robinson has launched a program locally to help ID the tiger shark population. After all, the more we know, the more we can conserve and protect. And, everyone can get involved.
Shark Angels love getting youth invoived in whatever their passionate about. And feeding that passion! Which is why we think it is great Thomas is our youngest Finfree coordinator. At age 11, Thomas is doing what he loves during most of his free time. So we wanted to thank him, inspire him and help him understand what a big difference he is making. We arranged a behind the scenes tour at the Florida Aquarium to learn more about the animal he loves and protects.
What do you dream about? The infamous ABC4 dreams of sharks of course. Amazing new video from Shark Angels Andy Brandy Casagrande and Emma Casagrande launches today!
